‘Rome, sweet home’

For New Orleans Catholic editor Peter Finney, a planned assignment to go to Rome cover his new archbishop — Archbishop Gregory M. Aymond — as he received his pallium June 29 from Pope Benedict XVI turned out to be a frustrating journey that took him only as far as Atlanta and back home again.

In his column in the July 11 issue of the Clarion Herald, newspaper of the New Orleans Archdiocese, Finney describes his frustrating experience with a generous dose  of good humor.

“Fifty-six hours and three canceled airplane flights later, I had made it as far as Atlanta 400 miles away, a 7 mph pace that easily could have been matched by a B-list Kenyan runner with tender bunions,” he writes.
