Four short highlights from today in Roma:
1. Normally we don't have classes on Fridays, but today we did. Monsignor brought everyone french fries from McDonald's.
2. I'm debating on whether or not I should buy a phone while I'm over here. I don't really want a phone, but I feel like it would be more responsible to have a cheap one, just in case I get run over by a bus or kidnapped or something.
3. I was planning on going to a Russian Mass tonight (pretty cool, right?). Well, we got to the church about 15 minutes early. The four of us that were there thought that the people all looked very Russian indeed. Then Mass started. It was in Italian. We went to the wrong Church! Ha! And we thought all the people were Russian! Ooops...

4. I lit a candle and prayed at the pillar at which Jesus was scourged. It was such an intense experience, words truly aren't sufficient. Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
