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

Msgr. gave us another great tour inside, here he points out the details of the large carved column that most visitors don't understand. It is, it turns out, the ultimate Easter candlestick in the world, as the carvings depict the progression from the chaos of a fallen world, to the life, death and Resurrection of Christ, and finally on the upper levels, to Christ being the Light eternally enthroned.
