I put this into the vocations subsection because I feel like this is going to begin my serious discernment.
In 4 hours I begin my journey to Rome. I plan on staying in a monastery near Vatican City. I am so excited but also very scared. I will be traveling alone and I speak very little Italian. I set my heart on this trip and found a way to make it economically feasible.
I have been blessed with many friends who have helped this far with travel and boarding arrangements. Please pray that this trip goes smoothly and that my adventure in the eternal city will be a life changing experience.
If you have any advice or suggestions please feel free to include them and keep in mind it's too late for me to give up and stay home. If you don't have any words of wisdom, I would appreciate a quick prayer that everything goes well and that I get on the path of my vocation.
