Scouted for Sainthood
The splendid and spectacular beauty of Rome is always inviting. She has ancient and fascinating architectural excellences, hundreds of adorable churches with finest marble sculptures both Gothic and Baroque and firmly grounded triumphal columns standing head on high for centuries.

Seminary life consistently provides a variety of distinct opportunities. Especially when the seminary itself is in Rome, there are infinite opportunities I never thought I would get to experience in my life.

Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls
The Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls is one of the four major papal basilicas in Rome. It is dedicated to Apostle Paul who was martyred in Rome between 64 and 68 AD and was built over his tomb. Even though it is located outside of Rome’s city centre, it is an important place of interest for thousands of pilgrims and visitors.
