I am back from Rome. Back from a city that I visited quite often in my live but I never experienced it so busy like these last few days. I guess the beatification of Pont. Max. JPII filled the streets of Rome with happy folks last week, happy in anticipation of things to come. People want the former pope to become sanctus as soon as possible. Sanctus subitus.
Rome IS amazing: History on every corner. Your eyes move from a Roman column to a church that was built in the fourth century with pieces of art in it created by the master Michelangelo and back to a Roman brick wall with happy modern live in between.
Being part of this city for a few days leads to instant happiness. And you see angels everywhere. Small and large, angry and happy angels.
Rome is in a sense a city of angels.
