Monksworks Podcast May 7: Assisi—My Rooms With A View

014

I have been living in Assisi for three weeks, studying Italian four hours a day, walking a great deal, visiting major Franciscan watering holes, but more thoughtfully than when I visited Assisi in the past. My apartment was on the Piazza San Rufino, a major square and site of the Cathedral of San Rufino, where both Francis of Assisi and Saint Clare were baptized. I depart for Venice on Friday. I shall miss looking out my window at the rooftops of Assisi and the valley below, the portion of Assisi called Santa Maria degl’Angeli.
