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!

Sunday, March 26

Santa Pudenziana and her sister Santa Praxedes were reputed to have aided in the gathering of the bodies of the martyrs, hiding them in this well until they could be buried. It's said that the blood of 3000 martyrs went into this well (not sure where that number came from, but it's a good devotional image to remember)
