Will you be visiting Rome...?
This is the entrance to the Casa Santa Maria in Rome. In this property is located the U.S. Bishops Office for Visitors to the Vatican. The office is staffed by friendly Americans: a monsignor and a sister with volunteer seminarians.
It would be helpful for every American pilgrim to know that if they want to attend a papal event while in Rome, it is best for them to first contact this office via e-mail so as to get information on the Pope's scheduled appearances and so to request tickets: http://www.pnac.org/general/visiting_vatican.htm
