Finally at Our Hotel!

We were so happy to finally arrive at our hotel room!

Sitting out for us was a beautiful fruit basket with a note from the staff, wishing us a happy honeymoon.  How thoughtful!

Both of us were so exhausted that we immediately dropped our bags and jumped into bed for a nap!

But we would not sleep for long.  We knew we had important business to attend to.

Our first goal was to find the Church of St. Susanna, also known as the American Church in Rome.  There we would need to talk to a priest about whether the Holy Father would be giving his Wednesday General Audience Address the next day at the Vatican or at his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo.

We came prepared with our marriage certificate, for the Vatican website says you can get your marriage blessed by the pope if you visit him within 4 weeks of your wedding day, bring proof of the sacrament, and wear your wedding attire.
