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!

Last spring's Eucharistic Procession at the Angelicum!

Glory be, John's posted a ton of great photos on his blog, ORBIS CATHOLICVS (CATHOLIC WORLD), from the very beautiful Eucharistic procession that was held at the Angelicum last spring! A lot of us, myself included, participated in it.

I remember it fondly - it was a beautiful spring day in Rome, and many of our friends, laity, religious and seminarians joined with a lot of our Dominican professors and clergy assigned to the Angelicum to glorify our Eucharistic Lord in traditional style - complete with smells, bells, mantled friars, canopy, and chanted litanies.

Our path took us from the Adoration chapel through the university halls, around the arcades of the cloister, down the front steps, and up the steps into the front of the church of Dominic and Sixtus, the university's attached church dating back to the time when the Dominican nuns called the buildings home (a few centuries ago!).

Go to John's blog to see the photos!

I am so jealous of John, getting to be back in Rome studying away with the Dominicans, while I sit here awaiting another Minnesota winter. Sigh. :)
