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!

The papal crest of Benedict XVI in flowers - the last time I was up here it was JPII's crest... the difference struck me as I gazed down from the cupola in the same spot that I stood back then.

    Isn't that a papal tiara? I thought it had been replaced with a mitre...

    Yes, it certainly looks more like a triregnum than a mitre, maybe the gardener is holding out for a restoration of the true religion in the Vatican, and refuses to dig it up!
