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!

Tuesday, December 6

The phrase of the Benedictines is "ora et labora" - pray and work. Here is Nate at prayer, after we worked really hard to make it back to to town via a "shortcut" (ie, clambering straight up the side of the hill to the road running around the town wall... a slope covered with not only prickly groundcover but also a lot of wicked trees with trunks covered with thorns that almost got me!).
