Advent Calendar 2011: Week 2 Thursday

Fountains of Rome
Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevers

See that your lamps are burning; replenish them with oil;
and wait for your salvation, the end of earthly toil.
The watchers on the mountain proclaim the Bridegroom near;
go meet him as he cometh, with alleluias clear.

Advent Hymn #68
From The Hymnal 1982

Now this is a fountain to recognize. In the church the square is named for the Community of Sant'Egidio prays nightly at 8:30. It is a lovely experience. Glad to see the fountain.
