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

Suddenly, some lights came on and we saw the Easter candle being placed in its stand, and the Holy Father standing before us with his own candle. At first I thought the crowd was going to cheer or something, but it was just a pregnant pause and then the moment passed in silence, with the start of the beautiful singing of the Exultet like I've never heard it before!!
