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!

Thursday, April 20

The Holy Father leads us in prayer following each of the Vigil's prophetic readings from the Old Testament. For the record, while there are 7 readings in the "full" Vigil, the Vatican only used 4 (which I thought was a little odd, but... it still lasted 3 hours. And on the eve of Benedict's 79th birthday - he is not a young John Paul, though it is only his first year as pope!)
