It is the month of May. It is the month of Mary!

In order to celebrate the beginning of the month of Mary, a few of us went on a walking pilgrimage Tuesday afternoon. My friend from the Spanish College explained to us that it is the tradition to pray the Rosary while walking to and from a nearby Marian shrine. In Spanish it is called a Romería, which literally refers to one walking towards Rome. . After our Romería to Santa Maria in Trastereve we went for some gelato. Oh and by the way, I think I found my new favorite gelato place. I guess it is the most popular place among the seminarians at the English college.
What a beautiful way to begin the month of Our Lady by taking a walk to one of the oldest churches dedicated to her to pray the Rosary.
