Sorry I have been absent from here for a while; I was vacationing in Florida last week. A high point of the trip was visiting Ave Maria town near Naples, Florida. Have you heard of it? It is a brand-new, Catholic town, home to Ave Maria University. At the center of the lovely town is the gorgeous new church. I took a peek inside and it is incredible to see. The church is surrounded by cafes and shops and is across from the university. I feel very fortunate that I was able to visit Ave Maria!
