What happens when the Pope and the Dalai Lama decide they need an undercover vacation? During a highly publicized official visit at the Vatican, the Pope suggests an adventure so unexpected and appealing that neither man can resist. Before dawn, two of the most beloved and famous people on the planet don disguises, slip into a waiting car, and experience the countryside as regular people. Along for the ride are the Pope's overwhelmed cousin Paolo and his estranged wife, Rosa, an eccentric hairdresser with a lust for life who cannot resist the call to adventure - or the fun.
Against a landscape of good humor, exploration and spiritual delight, not to mention the sublime rolling hills of Italy, The Delight of Being Ordinary showcases the charming sensibilities of Roland Merullo (whose best-selling Breakfast with Buddha has sold over 200,000 copies) in a novel that makes us laugh as well as think about the demands of ordinary life, spiritual life, and the identities by which we all define ourselves.

Hope this is not the end of the story!
If you start with Breakfast with Budda and work through to this book, it is a great journey... 3rd time through and still find new insights. 60 years of reading everything and find this work the best. THANKS ROLAND !!!!

May be Merullo's best work yet!
I have loved many of Roland Merullo's works, particularly the Breakfast w Buddha trilogy and American Savior.
The Delight of Being Ordinary, especially as beautifully narrated on the Audible site, is my favorite!
It's a novel. But the premise of the storyline offers many insights to people of faith and to doubters about our commonality. It's about spiritual truths coming from diverse sources. It's about the value of travel to unlock new experiences, feelings, friendships, and enlightenment.
I highly recommend this book!
