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!

Saturday, February 18

Bonus saint! When I went back to St. Peter's later in the day to go to 5pm Mass, on my way out I saw something I hadn't seen before - the chapel containing the relics of St. John Chrysostom was both open and had the lights on! Now, I guess the Pope gave most of the relics of the saint back to the Eastern Churches a few years ago, but I assume there's still some of them buried here...
