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 of the 3rd Week of Lent - Station Church - Santa Pudenziana. We'll be back here later in the week...

    This church is popular with Filipino migrant workers.

    One nun who works with migrant workers there told me that Santa Pudenziana, Santa Praxedes, and Santo Novatus were brother and sisters, the children of a Roman senator who knew Saint Peter personally. She said, St. Peter was supposed to have visited their house, on which site Santa Pudenziana's church was built.

    The nun also said there are lots and lots of saints' relics in the basement.
