Franciscan Pilgrimage

The Franciscan Pilgrimage brings together students of various faith traditions from Franciscan Institutions across the United States to reflect on and learn from the vision and values of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi.

The luggage isn't here yet, but the trip is well worth it.

Even some lost luggage can't dampen the spirits of this group.

So having a pretty sweet time in Italy! St. Peters is AMAZING took my breath away, managed to almost get kicked out of the Coliseum, Threw a coin into Trevi fountain and have eaten enough gelato to last the average person a month :-)

Assisi is beautiful! We are all loving Assisi! You see God's beauty everywhere and you feel the peace and love all over. We celebrated New Year in Assisi and we really enjoyed our time at the square! We visited St. Francis house today and visited the place where he was born and also visited where him and St. Clare were baptized! We are really enjoying the pizza and the pasta and the ice cream here is delicious! I really don't know what to say about Assisi... The city will take your breath away!

I couldn't dream a place better than this. I woke up in a cloud and watched the most amazing sunset tonight. More than perfect, loving Assisi!

TODAYS ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Mass in the Vatican, climbing 520 stairs in the Vatican and feeding a seagull from the tippy top, visiting the Pantheon, tossing a coin into Trevi fountain, learning the true concept of "Italian space" ;) and almost getting kicked out of the Coliseum.

Buonanotte e tutti sogni d'oro!

What a beautiful day in Rome! Got here at 7 as the sun was rising, checked into a room with an awesome view, fed pigeons at Vatican square and toured ancient Rome. One day down, nine more to go!

Tomorrow: St. Peters tour, visit the Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museum, and Colosseum, finding the best place for pizza and experiencing a little bit of the night life!
