We met an interesting guy at the convent where we stayed in Assisi. He had visited many times before so we asked him for a unique place to check out that most people don't. He told us to go here and it was so great!...More

A magical experience which I cannot describe in words. I meditated in Santa Maria dello Rose and I also met the artist, Guido Dettoni. I am so grateful for him moulding Maria in his hands. He has given women in the world a huge appreciation...More
