Catholic Stuff Everywhere!!!

Italy is such a Catholic country!

No matter where we went, there were visible reminders of our faith.  From packed Catholic gift shops to little places for prayer (such as an icon of Our Mother built into the side of an apartment building), there was always a visual reminder of the fact that we are children of God!

This guy's Catholic shop had the best prices in town!  Everything was cheap!  You could tell he wanted to spread the message of God more than he wanted to make a profit.

A random street corner...with an icon for contemplative prayer!

Devotion to Our Lady is strong in Roma!  She was honored in just about every place they could think of.

This image of Our Lady was very close to our hotel room.  We passed it every day, walking down a little alley.
