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!

Thursday, November 3

On that same day we went down to the Church of Santa Croce in Gerusalame - they have a side chapel there that I hadn't seen before, with a display of the Shroud. On the side of the chapel was this very fascinating and moving crucifix, which was made using all of the information about the details of the suffering of the man from the Shroud, down to the positioning on the Cross. It was somewhat shocking to see, even after seeing the movie the Passion of the Christ. To see the exact details, as best they can be known from history and the Shroud record, is incredible. I wish the photo were better, but it was really dark in there.
