Bedroom of Pius XII as it looks today...








This is the old bedroom of the future Pope Pius XII at Rome's Capranica. When he was a seminarian he lived here for some time. Today yours truly offered a prayer in this same room for his speedy canonization.

Thanks for these pictures. I can remember hearing "horror stories" of older priests who'd tell me how spartan their rooms were at the seminary, when compared to what we had (92-98). But this seems like a decent sized room. I understand it's probably been redone a few times since Papa Pacelli was a seminarian, but still if he had this room all to himself it's rather nice.
