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, April 9

His Holiness, Pope Benedict. As he passed, I noticed one of many surprising things at this liturgy - that the crowds this time were mostly quiet, not screaming at him, clawing towards him, or flashing cameras (well, there was some of that, obviously). Really, the crowd was quite reverent and solemn in keeping with the mood of the day.
