Friar Don Miller. OFM
I am a Franciscan priest. I spent my early years of ministry in New Mexico working among the Pueblo Native Americans and the Hispanics. In 1978 I began my years in academics working as a chaplain, faculty member, and administrator at various universities in the southwest and the midwest. I taught various course in theology, especially in my area of specialty which is moral theology. I have been the Vocation Director for the Province of Saint John the Baptist since 2003.

I am "home" in Assisi

St_peter_basilica_from_curia_room I flew to Rome yesterday and took a train to Roma Termini and was met there by Fr. Joy, O.F.M. who is from India. Thank God he was there because the bus trip to the Curia was confusing. I spent some time visiting with the English speaking Council member who is from California. Later, when I went to my room, I threw open the shutters and could not believe what I saw. Right outside my window was the dome of Saint Peter Basilica. I tried taking a  picture in the dark, but that did not work. So this morning I took one just after sunrise.

This morning Joy and I were on the streets early heading back to the TerView_from_my_balconymini so I could catch a train to Assisi. Again, when I got to my room I was delighted to see that I was overlooking Santa Chiara (Saint Clare) church and have a fantastic view of the city and the valley below. I took a couple of quick pictures, but I have not really begun capturing the sights for myself and this blog. I have done a great deal of walking today and expect to have sore legs in the morning. The hills here are killers.

The use of the internet cafe is a little expensive, so I will try to keep up to date, but I may have to wait and do the bulk of the pictures when I get back to England on Monday. You are all in my prayers.
