Yesterday we wandered around and saw a few churches in the Ghetto part of town.
On the way we visited one of the “Talking Statues”.
And nearby there is one of the fountains set up during the time of Il Duce for the different regions of Rome.
We visited S. Maria in Campitelli.
St. John Leonardi.
Then we wandered by the wonderful little turtle fountain.
Over to San Carlo ai Catinari and the beautiful painting of Our Lady of Providence. Many childless couples pray there for children and there are zillions of ex voto offerings left.
I mentioned that there are still church’s around that haven’t changed their coat-of-arms of Pope’s for a long time. At S. Maria in Monticelli…
Meanwhile, I saw this charming poster on a wall.
One of the errands I had to run was pick up an MC’s cassock, a new alb (mine are pretty much gossamer thin and worn out, and a cincture (the one I travel with literally came apart in my hands while I was in Paris). In a shop I saw this… someone got his degree! Congratulations.
