The NAC (Ash Wednesday)

Jeffrey Kirby a seminarian for the Diocese of Charleston, SC met me shortly after the papal audience and we walked up the hill toward the Pontifical North American College where he is a student. I had wanted to visit the NAC to see a number of people and places that were detailed in a book that I worked on with then rector of the NAC, now Archbishop of Milwaukee, Timothy Dolan. Jeff gave me a great tour, the seminary gave me a great meal (no meat...Ash Wednesday) and then took me to the roof for what must be the absolute best view of the entire city of Rome anywhere. I took some pictures but they don't quite get the beauty of the site. If you go to the NAC link you can take a virtual tour of the college.
