The Eternal City!

We've made it! ROME!

After what felt like a puddle jump breeze of 2 hours, we've landed in Rome. For the fly in from Amsterdam, I began to read "John Paul II: The Story of My Life." I had to stop and pause at this section:

"The date set for Father Karol's departure for Rome was November 15, 1946. There he remained for nearly two years, deepening his theological studies.

When the date arrived, I boarded the train with great excitement. With me was Stanislaw Starowieysjki, a younger colleague who had been sent to take his whole course of theological studies in Rome. For the first time I was leaving the borders of my homeland."

Buòna sera, Roma! Grazie!
