Roma/Rome/Rooma 23.6.2008

Monday the 23rd we had a full day to see Rome and its major attractions. First we visited a church near the Pantheon for morning prayer, then the Pantheon itself, then a famous ice cream bar near the Pantheon which fr. Robert Galla SCJ (now in Tampere, Finland) had first taken me to in 2003. There are about a hundred flavours and we each got a cone with 5. Keeping it together in 30 degrees centigrade was a challenge in itself. We met some Norwegians and I got the chance to speak a bit of Norwegian for the first time since my Lapland trip I think.

Then we walked to Fontana di Trevi for another refreshment…

Santa Maria Maggiore- kirkon jälkeen kävimme vinkulikirkossa eli P. Pietarin kahleiden kirkossa. Vanhat vitsit tuli mieleen viime Rooman reissulta kun vinkuli oli matkan teemasana. Terveiset Danielille ja Santille! Tässä Pietarin kahleet ja alla Michelangelon Mooses, jolla Hieronymuksen käännösvirheen takia sarvet päässä.

In the Church of St. Peter in Chains we saw the chains of St. Peter (surprise!!) and the famous Moses of Michelangelo with horns on his head. St. Jerome mistranslated the Hebrew in the Vulgate and instead of a shining face he had Moses have horns grow on his head (the words in the original OT text are close or identical to each other).

Forum Romanum. Hic totam horam latine locuti sumus, vulgari mente ac classice, italicis et barbaris. Sicut abhinc quattuor annos, Fantam aquamque latine emi, et Emma-Sofia fecit depositum in apparatum photographicum digitalem, spero ut possim eum mox hic installare ut spectari potest. Reactiones varias accepimus e gente – frustrationem, gaudium, ignorantiam – placuit mihi magnopere. Sicut Cicero aut Paulus ad gentes sermonem dixi alta voce et restitutionem Fori Romani proposui sed homines non auscultaverunt. Tragedia vera.

In Colosseo fui prima vice intra muras et vidi locum in quo multitudo martyrum christianorum vitam suam dedit pro Domino et ecclesia Dei crescenda. Miratus sum etiam quia pagani vitam non aestimaverunt sed mors eis ludus fuit atque tremendum est mysterium reprobationis Dei quia revelationem non habuerunt in salvationem. Date mihi veniam quoniam errores certe feci.
