Story:
We were on a plane for a LONG time and landed in MIlan exhausted but exhilrated to be here. We have two days to get ready for our group of about 140 to arrive. We will take them to Turin to see the Shroud of Turin and the rest of the city. Then to San Giovanni Rotundo to venerate Padre Pio, Lanciano to see the Eucharistic Miracle, Monapelo to see the face cloth of Jesus, Loreto for the Holy House, Assisi and Rome and more.</p>
<p>So yesterday after landing I thought the best way to beat jet lag would be to run. I took off from our hotel and had three places in mind to see. It was a great day for running since it was a bit cool, had just rained and was still overcast. I ran 6.4 miles.</p>
<p>First I went to the church where Di Vinci's painting of the Last Supper is housed (actually in a museum next door) but like I already knew, you can't see it because you need advance reservations and only a limited number can view it per day. Then I ran to the Basilica of St. Ambrose, Doctor of the Church and patron of Milan. He will be one of the four Doctors of the Church included in our upcoming DVD in the Footprints of God series.</p>
<p>Then on to the Cathedral, the magnificent Gothic Duomo which is the third largest church in the world. It holds 40,000 people. It is incredible and has to be seen to be believed. You can walk on the roof to see the 3,500 statues.</p>
<p>I got back to the hotel still full of energy, amazingly. But I felt it this morning when I woke up :-)</p>
