We were recently in Rome. One early evening, on our way back to the hotel, after a busy day sightseeing, we looked in, quite by chance, on the church of Trinita dei Monti, at the top of the Spanish Steps. This was the sight and sound that greeted us (not my video, but one I found on Youtube of a similar occasion): the monks and nuns of the Fraternités Monastiques de Jérusalem chanting the Office. Balm for the soul.
