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!

Monday, July 10

The honor guard for the Blessed Sacrament begins with the town band, proclaiming the Lord behind them, then a group of townspeople, then a group of kids bearing roses in albs, then these fellows in black, the Benedictine monks, then the priest with the Blessed Sacrament, and then the city leaders with the banner of Norcia, followed at last by the rest of the townspeople and anyone else who joins up along the way!! Of course, all along the way too the residents alongside the streets where the procession passes also are waiting for the Lord to come, and they will add their presence as the procession passes.
