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, April 18

Immediately following the Good Friday service at the Vatican, the Pope in his car, and we in the "cattle car" called the Roman Metro, set out for the Way of the Cross with the Holy Father at the Coliseum.

When we got there, the place was packed... we just went up the hill a bit nearby, where we could sit and see reasonably well slightly apart from the major part of the crowds. It was a good choice of spots, really. We had printed off the English translations of the station meditations before coming, so we were able to follow along, thankfully, and able to fully participate in this beautiful service.
