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!

Friday, April 21

A closer view of the altar area - above the tabernacle on the ridge there is the Latin phrase, taken from the traditional wording of the Angelus prayer. But inside this chapel, there's something different about it - it says "HIC Verbum caro factum est"; HERE the Word became flesh! We came here during the Easter season, and so they sang the Regina Caeli at noon instead of the Angelus - but if you come here when they sing the Angelus, they will sing it with that unique phrase, HERE the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us!
