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!

Saturday, May 13

Today, on this Feast of our Lady of Fatima, the Vatican celebrated the 25th anniversary of the assassination attempt on John Paul II's life, May 13th, 1981. A lot of you who have been to Rome have seen the little red cobblestone in the Square marking the spot that he was on when he was shot - well, as of yesterday that little brick is gone and replaced with this beautiful piece of marble.
