February 29: Ammazza, aho!

Happy leap year! 365 days this year. Today is the birthday of Pope Paul III (n. 1468).

Yesterday evening was spent at the only true "Restaurante Mexicano" in Rome. My Mexican friends who study at the Regina Apostolorum spend a lot of time there. They all call me "little John."

Anyways, when you visit Rome you want to eat Italian, right? Also, visit these two places which we students frequent near the Vatican:

La Cucaracha (
via Mocenigo, 10a

Cantina Tirolese (
Via G. Vitelleschi, 23

Many thanks for your very kind and generous donation! It was a lovely meal among Catholic students from Mexico, Germany, Spain, Italy, Venezuela, Honduras, Tirol, etc. I carry in my heart your intentions to the tomb of Sanctus Petrus and I ask God to reward you with every blessing from above.
