Roma se Prepara para Dar la Bienvenida a Papa Francisco


Il nuovo Papa Jorge Mario Bergoglio con il nome di Francesco I

Finalmente Roma tiene un nuevo papa.

El mundo se mostro sorprendido al descubrir que la eleccion habia sido mas rapida de lo esperado, pero la sopresa mayor fue descubrir que el nuevo papa – que tomara el nombre de Francesco, o Francisco en espanol- no era otro que Jorge Mario Bergoglio, arzobispo de Buenos Aires, quien no habia sido incluido en ninguna de las listas preliminares elaboradas por expertos en cuestiones vaticanas y por los genios de las probabilidades de las casas de apuestas de todo el mundo. Como se dice en Roma, quien entra al conclave como papa sale como cardenal.

Vista en retrospectiva, la eleccion del arzobispo Bergoglio- quien sera el primer papa “extra-europeo” de la historia-  es una eleccion inteligente. Se trata de un hombre austero, quien eligio su nombre como homenaje a San Francisco de Asis y que sin duda dara a la iglesia calor humano y fuerza, eso sin mencionar las inmensas reservas de apoyo y devocion que lo respaldan en America Latina, donde la mayor parte de la pobacion profesa la fe catolica.

El proximo domingo el papa Francisco ofrecera su primer Angelus, la bendicion publica que los papas ofrecen cada semana a medio dia. Sera sin duda una gran oportunidad para presenciar un evento historico!

Rome Welcomes Pope Francis

Il nuovo Papa Jorge Mario Bergoglio con il nome di Francesco I

So, we finally have a Pope.

The world was surprised to learn the election was so quick, but was even more surprised to learn that the new pope – who will go under the name Francesco, or Francis in English- was Jorge Mario Bergoglio, archbishop of Buenos Aires, who wasn’t included in any of the preliminary lists made by Vatican experts and probability whizzes at the gambling companies around the world. As the  Roman saying  goes, whoever enters the conclave as a pope, leaves as a cardinal.

With hindsight, the election of archbishop Bergoglio, who will become the first pope to arrive from outside Europe, is a smart one. An austere man who chose his papal name inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi, he is sure to bring warmth and vigour to the church he is called to lead, that without mentioning the immense reserve of devotion and support he will find in Latin America, where the majority of the population is catholic.

Next Sunday, Pope Francis will offer his first Angelus, the public blessing the pope offers every week at noon. It will be a great opportunity to be part of a historical event!

Rome: Conclave to Elect New Pope Starts Today

conclaveToday, cardinals from all around the world will meet in Rome to elect a new leader for the catholic church.

According to the Italian media there are a couple of strong names, namely cardinal Scola from Milano and cardinal Scherer from Sao Paolo but none of them seems to be able to get the 77 votes that are necessary to reach the majority of the preferences. Specialists do not expect a quick decision but it’s almost certain that the new pope will be elected before the week ends, probably on Sunday, a possibility that the city council has already contemplated, making arrangements to move the annual city marathonf from the morning to the evening in case Sunday turns out to be the big day.

Tonight rains in Rome and there is in the air a feel of anticipation while the eyes and cameras of the world turn to the Sistine chapel waiting for the white smoke signal that will open the next chapter in the history of catholicism.

The title of the new album has not yet been revealed, but the statements of vocalist Ian Gillan and guitarist Steve Morse suggest a record that will leave a mark. Morse makes it clear that the same could be one of the latest in the band’s studio. The eight years that separate  “Rapture of the Deep” allowed the English education to tap into a multitude of material written in this period. Therefore legitimate to expect a work worthy of the best Deep Purple.

Appian Way (Appia Antica)

Appia AnticaThe Romans wanted to defeat every enemy that stood on their path hindering the empire’s growth and roads were built to achieve the end. Roads played significant role in moving armies, supplies, reinforcement, trade, power and wealth.

Appian way, which connects Rome to south Italy, was one of the main roads Romans desperately needed.

Appius Claudius, Roman censor, constructed dirt road with stones and mortar stretching from Rome to Capua for 200km. Part of the road was started and finished in 312 BC. The Appian to date has the longest straight road in Europe (64 km).

To mention few of the important historical events that happened on this road:

In the 71 BC, 6000 slaves were slain by the Romans after their revolt ended in defeat at the hands of the Roman Army. In the WWII, Allied Forces landed at Nettuno to capture Rome penetrating through Appian way but the Germans resisted until their defeat in 1944. And Abebe Bekila won 1960 summer olympics, that passed through this way.

Long kilometers of the Appian way are now open to the public for walking, jogging, bicycling etc.

The following monuments are found along the Appian way: Baths of Caracalla (at the start), catacomb of San Callisto and a small church (chiesa del Domine Quo Vadis) on Via Ardeatina a street that branches off Appian Way.
