I wasn’t sure where to post this, so mods, if there’s a better forum, please feel free to move this thread.
I’m leaning towards RCIA in the Fall, and have already decided that upon completion, I’d like to take a trip to the Vatican next summer. I’ve always been a bit of a traveler, and I feel a trip to the Holy City would be extremely meaningful to me and my young Faith.
I was curious, has anyone here ever visited the Vatican? What’s it like? I understand it’s a pretty small place, being under a half mile in each direction. What’s the surrounding area like? I’d be visiting the City by myself, so I’d probably need to find some other things to do. What was your experience in going? Does it take your breath away, and make you humbled? Does the Pope do Mass every Sunday, or only when he’s not on business?
