Roman Wonderment


Rome causes one to be in a state of wonderment at all times. You think it cannot get any better and then you stumble upon a new place of beauty. You stand in the Pantheon and are in awe that such a place still exists…and that once again a great cloud of witnesses has been there.

You enter St. Peter’s Square at night and marvel at how the sky is so red.


You stroll into St. Ignacio Square and gaze at a church so big that you wonder if the people who attended knew anything of the Spiritual Exercises of this saint or found God in all things. 


As the hour grows late, I am thankful for all of it. Even these magnificent angels that keep watch over my bed tonight. 


As In the Franciscan way, I leave you with peace and all goodness. May the blessings of The Lord be upon you today and always. 



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
