Postcards from Rome: (Or: Holiday Reading)

Image

Cardinal George Pell of Australia is having a well-earned three-month holiday in Rome at his palatial digs, Domus Australia. According to his spokesman, Pell will be catching up on some “reading” before going on a “pilgrimage” through Greece, and possibly, Turkey.

Here we see George with his favourite book he will be catching up on.

Image

Of course, he will have to find time to finally read this book, which the boss thinks he should at least skim through.

Image

Here, George is seen choosing some light reading from a Rome bookstore, catering exclusively to Cardinals.

Image

The Domus Australia lounge bar is a good, quiet place to do some serious reading.

Image

Sometime, it’s good to have some friends drop in for a group reading session.

Image

Then, of course, there is reading just to help with getting to sleep.

Image

You never know who you might run into in the public library!

Image

Better to avoid the cheaper book stores, since you might be exposed to books like this.

Image

Here, George proudly points out the library extension to Domus Australia, under construction.

Image

When he wants to get away from the media, George likes to do some “invisible” reading (see previous posting).

Image

In the end, there is only one really good thing that can be read over and over again – The Domus Australia Menu!!
