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!

Wednesday, April 26

On Tuesday we met Fr. Carola for a Mass at the Gregorian University (beautiful of course), and then we went out in search of food for lunch... harder task than we thought, because yesterday was a national holiday ("Liberation Day", the question is, liberation from whom? ;) and most grocery stores and markets were closed. We did find food eventually, by way of both a grocery store and Burger King (I admit it. I wanted a Whopper. Bad.) Then, Fr. Carola had something up his sleeve for a place to picnic at... we ended up going to the gardens above the Spanish Steps, inside the Trinita dei Monti cloiser area (now a school for French kids), Fr. teaches the kids catechism class, so he had an "in" to get us up there. It was a beautiful area to picnic in, unfortunately I only have this one photo of the guys coming back with benches for our picnic table, and not of the garden view itself!

    Is Fr. Carola wearing...a...cassock?

    On a Jesuit?

    TOO cool.
