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!

A better shot of the statue as the procession went by. On Mary's head is a crown containing the actual bullet casing that struck the Holy Father 25 years ago - after the attempt, John Paul II attributed his protection to the intercession of our Lady, and since it was on the Feast of our Lady of Fatima, later the bullet itself was sent there.
