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!

Wednesday, February 22

After lunch I went into the Basilica to pray in honor of the feast day, and to visit the Chair of St. Peter (I guess, it is considered to be actually *inside* that chair that is part of Bernini's sculpture under the Holy Spirit window. Thus, it would be the real reason why that altar is called the Altar of the Chair!) Here's a good view of it from the papal altar.

    wow it's so beautiful with all the candles!! i remember when we were there 4 years ago my then 5yo daughter drew a picture of the window during mass, afterward she gave to the sweet, ancient nun sitting beside us, she was so overjoyed to see THREE children all belonging to the same family. i felt sorry for her because in our parish we're a little family.
