Donations: thanks for keeping (us) "in civitate mea" (Roma Beata)!

"That you too, may be where I am" (John 14:3).

The purpose of this blog has been to inspire young Catholics to study in Rome during this historic pontificate. The Lord does not always call those who are qualified, but instead He qualifies those who are called.

Students bemoan how expensive it is to study stateside or abroad. The student of today does not get off scot-free, but has to pay many thousands of dollars to keep afloat, although it is still often cheaper to study abroad.

We students are not alone and share the responsibility with family and generous souls who donate to our cause - thank you to everybody! Endurable it is thanks to your help.

So many in the world refuse credence to God's message and this is why we need more students to study the sacred sciences in Rome so as to return home after graduation to teach. We have to teach Catholics how to be Catholic. There is work to be done.

Become a lay officialis of the Church and study so as to teach!

The moon receives its light from the sun and we are the same. The Sun of Justice is at the meridian; are we ready?

"Consider, brethren, the circumstances of your own calling; not many of you are wise, in the world's fashion, not many powerful, not many well born." (1 Corinthians 1:26).

The Lord makes us poor. You endow us. The Lord reward you!

N.B. And many thanks to the amazing Spokane priest - his miracle donation allowed me to renew my passport in time!
