Opening The Capranica

Why "The Capranica"? According to a book my wife has been reading (The Inside Story of How the Vatican Really Thinks, John L. Allen - a former High School teacher of hers), Italians who are going places in the Roman religious system complete their studies at the Pontificia Academia and live at "The Capranica." Quoting John Allen: "In the European system, a college is a residence, not a place of study. Anyone who knows Italy realizes that a young cleric who is selected to study at the Academia and to live at the Capranica is going places." - p 87. Capranica being my last name, pastoral ministry my calling in life (though a protestant), and John Allen's comments, it all seems to fit. So, here is the official opening of my random thoughts on theology and life from the residence of the Capranica (the one in California, not Italy). See also: All Things Capranica
