Pontifical universities are deep into the period for end of the year exams. And so, life here has intensified. Often the exams are comprehensive, that is, covering all the material from the semester or the year. Some exams are written, many are oral with either one or two professors. The photos show my view in the library the past few days.
After five exams, I have one remaining and then I will be "free" to begin focusing on learning French while trying to keep up with Italian, Latin, and Greek. I am especially pleased to have passed my Latin and Greek exams. The written portion lasted 4 hours for each, followed by a one hour oral exam with the professor. It was not fun, but I suppose, it was a necessary part of life here.
And so, thanks for all the prayers and words of support!
