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 other transcept altar is dedicated to St. Joseph, the sculpture is of the angel bringing the message to St. Joseph to be not afraid to take Mary into his home. Of particular interest though is the altar itself - it contains the remains of "Santa Vittora, vergine e martire" who died under the persecution of Diocletian.
