Roamin' Roman chronicled the travels and studies of Mary Gibson, a U.S. college student studying for one year in Rome. Mary traveled all over Italty - and Europe - and shared the Catholic sites and sounds she discovered - Saints' tombs, shrines, World Youth Day, papal masses - you name it.
Reading her blog was like traveling across Italy visiting all the amazing Catholic sites - complete with gorgeous pictures.
When Mary returned to the U.S., she returned to her original blog, Veritas Splendor.
But, today, Mary is leaving her blog - and the world - behind as she enters cloistered life with the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles in Kansas City, Mo.
Please say a prayer for Mary today - and all others entering and discerning religious life - as she starts an amazing journey today!
And, check out Mary's own story, moving from non-practicing Catholic to future cloistered nun! Amazing.
