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!

A closer view of the statue of Our Lady of the Smile. This has got to be my favorite Virgin Mary statue, even apart from the sentimental aspect of the connection with St. Therese, I just think it is one of the most beautiful depictions of Mary (it is a version of the popular statue of Our Lady of Grace, the Miraculous Medal image)
