Studying in Rome is, indeed, a challenging endeavor. That's why during break time in between periods, I never fail to say a little prayer while taking a glance at an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary at the big indoor space of the Pontifical Gregorian University called "quadroportico".
For more than a month, I was contemplating on the image while uttering the words "Mama Mary, guide me in my studies". Everyday, I pray "Mama Mary, guide me in my studies". I am confident that she is on my side.
One time, I went down to look closely at the image. Ooops, sorry, it is an image of Jesus not Mama Mary. Yeah, yeah, I should've known that since I am in an institution run by the Jesuits, the Society of Jesus. All the while I thought, it was her.
In my heart, I laughed yet I don't feel any guilt because I know Jesus would not even mind such mistaken identity. However, I cannot stop thinking that Jesus might have laughed at me! And so are you...hehehe!
