Thanks to Amy for sending this link to a photo of a very lovely place — the font where Augustine was baptized by Ambrose. Pope Benedict, in his five audience talks on Augustine, kept returning to that scene. The photo gives me goosebumps. Tolle, lege.

Oy, I was there in Milan on Palm Sunday! Life has been so busy with so much going on, I never go to blog on it … photos will be up soon (a bit clearer ones than those you linked :))! I prayed for you there …

Here’s where I confess that I have a stone from that font, “acquired” by a friend on her visit to Milan.
