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!

    Hey -- I'm a regular visitor and enjoy your blog (and the Rome angle) tremendously! Rome is one of my favorite spots in the planet ...

    Anyway --- I don't think that's the tomb of St. Francis in the Gesù. I believe it's his arm that's encased in a reliquary. The rest of his body is in Goa, India at the Cathedral of Bom Jesus in Old Goa.
