America's seminary in Rome...


One of the nicest pieces of real estate in all of Rome is the Pontifical North American College. Here we see their motto from Psalm 57 (my heart is steadfast).
It's a nice campus. If there were vines on the walls you'd see all the ambitious little ants scrambling all over for a desire of preferment/attainment. But instead, in priestly formation, we must remind ourselves that the highest law is the salvation of souls and nothing more (no matter what anybody says).

Don't suppose you have any photos of the original North American College (now Casa Sta. Maria).

Yes, I'll try to post them if I can find them around (I now have thousands of pics on lots of cds here and in America).
