I am amazed at how one can learn so much in a month, particularly regarding language. The human mind is incredible!
This picture is of the chapel where St. Francis received the stigmata (the wounds of Christ).
I was recently wondering why, despite all the wonderful Italian food I have been eating, I have not gained any weight (yet). One of my seminarian brothers explained to me the reason: there are two hundred plus steps between my room and the dining hall. This means, every day, I have walked approximately up and down one thousand steps (250 x 4 trips). My legs are definitely getting a workout! It is good, though, because when I return to Rome, the main means of travel will be my legs. The more I walk now, the more I will be able to travel comfortably in Rome. There is a lot to see and do in Rome, so I better get ready for it.
I am again out of time. So I will continue this blog later, and hopefully finish the other two which I have not finished yet.
