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!

Fr. Carola's Profession of Final Vows

Today, on the 24th of May in the year of our Lord 2007, in the Church of the Gesu in Rome, Fr. Joseph Anthony Francis Ignatius Carola, SJ made his final profession of vows in the Society of Jesus, at last, before God and man -- including our friend Bernard who was gracious enough to take the following video of the momentous occasion. Yay for technology! :)

(I'm taking a bit of a liberty in uploading it to YouTube myself... hope I'm not in trouble, but I wanted you all to be able to see this ASAP and the video file was too big to e-mail!!)

Teach us, Good Lord,
to love Thee as Thou deservest.
To give, and not to count the cost.
To fight, and not to heed the wounds.
To toil, and not to seek for rest.
To labour, and not to ask for any reward,
Save that of knowing -
that we do Thy will.

Ad maiorem Dei gloriam!
