ROME - Among the sea of people flooding St. Peter’s Square in anticipation of Pope Francis’s general audience right after his meeting with President Trump, U.S. students wait hoping to have a glimpse of the pontiff and insight into what transpired during the momentous meeting.
The students have traveled all the way from Massachusetts to Rome for a two-week experience through the SOPHIA (SOPHomore Initiative at Assumption College) program, designed to help students discover a deeper connection between their spiritual, personal and professional lives, according to their site.
