The Roamin' Roman

Benvenuto! You have happened upon the blog of a wandering Catholic American college student studying for a year in Rome, the Eternal City. You will find here my pontifications, ruminations, reflections, images, and ponderings on my life in Rome. Ciao!

The apse chapel to Our Lady that Therese attended daily Mass in. It is interesting to note that this chapel was furnished by the former bishop of Lisieux, Bishop Caucon... who was the one most responsible for the trial and subsequent death of St. Joan of Arc! In fact, the see of Lisieux was his "reward" from the British for his "work" in eliminating the problem of Joan... The bishop is actually buried in this chapel as well. Ironic, considering Therese's deep love and devotion towards Joan of Arc.
