About two years ago, I was getting ready for my three month sabbatical in Rome at the Pontifical North American College. What a great place!
I'm considered an alumnus because I attended their institute. I'm flattered but know why that is. But what a great place! Oh, I said that already. I wish I could go back each year for three months! Maybe I will when I retire.
I just received an email from the North American introducing their new first year seminarians. Can you imagine the excitement of these young men to be able to study in Rome and travel Europe at their age! Please pray for them and all the new seminarians starting the academic year as well as the old timers.
