Student Pilgrimage: A few highlights from Jacob Supina
Getting to know Rome
The first day we were all tired! But, it was neat getting to meet new people and experience Rome at night.
The next day we experienced St. Peter’s Basilica. It was absolutely breath-taking! I could spend an ENTIRE DAY at the Basilica. There is just so much to it. We also saw the Colosseum and the Pantheon and had great pasta and pizza!
On to Assisi
After Rome we moved on to Greccio and then to Assisi. I’ve never been so proud of my faith! The history, the symbolism behind all the artwork, and the stories are just great to see and hear.
We celebrated New Year’s Eve in Assisi and that was a lot of fun. We’ve seen some great views of Assisi and have seen places where Francis has been.
At San Damiano, we saw where St. Clare passed away. It’s crazy to have thought that was the spot where she died!
The food here has been great. Some people are getting tired of pasta, but I’m not.
