Though Utah is indisputably the best state in the Union, most of its denizens have never heard of The Catholic University of America. So, I often just say it is “the BYU of Catholicism” and leave it at that. This semester, I am studying abroad in the Eternal City: Rome. While I’d guess that most people in Utah have heard of Rome, I still think it’s amusing to say I’ve moved up to “the Provo of Catholicism.”
In keeping with this title, this is a blog about my semester here. One goal of this short period of time is to attend Mass in (or at least visit) as many Catholic churches as conceivably possible. I also aim to finally gain my freshman fifteen (perhaps with some interest) from fine food and wine, build lasting friendships, and have a holistic experience that only this place can offer. My hope for this blog is that it will be an amusing, insightful and enjoyable way to share my adventures with my family, friends and loved ones.
