Old Rome...

“Make the most of Rome. Do you see the dead corpse of that imperial city? What can be glorious in life, if such wealth and beauty has come to nothing? But who has stood firm in these wretched changes – what survives? The relics of the saints and the chair of the Fisherman.”
-Bl. Edmund Campion: Letter to Gregory Martin (16th cent.).
