This weekend I will leave for Rome to make my visit “ad limina apostolorum” (to the threshold [of the tombs] of the Apostles).  This official and required visit usually takes place every five years; however, it has been eight years since my last visit.  Both Popes Benedict and Francis have lengthened the time between these visits.
