Rome Quotes

"We sang for kings and queens; we had an audience with the Holy Father, Pope Pius XI, and sang for him the 'Ave Verum' by Mozart; we spend ten happy days in Assisi in the steps of Saint Francis.  We walked the Via Appia, whose cobblestones had been trodden by the feet of the Apostles, into Rome, and knelt in the Colosseum and the Catacombs.  These weeks were filled to the brim with happy and holy excitement."

-Maria Augusta Trapp
