Rome, Italy --
Lots of time in prayer.
Spending a great deal of time in prayer.
Though the Legion of Christ seminarians did not get to visit all 25 churches in Rome as they had planned, the December 2013 Church-a-thon fundraiser was a success, according to one of the men who participated.

Br. John Choi said he and his fellow seminarians want to extend a “a big thank you” to all who supported them on their trek to visit as many of the Roman churches in one day as possible.  “This year was a big success,” he said. “We didn’t reach all 25 churches, but we did spend a great deal of time in prayer.”

On December 21, 2013, the seminarians set out to visit 25 historic Roman churches on foot, stopping to pray at as many on their list as possible.  They carried with them the prayer intentions of those people who had pledged to support them in their studies and had asked for specific intentions.

For Br. John, one of the highlights of the Church-a-thon was visiting the church where St. Maximilian Kolbe reportedly celebrated Mass for the first time.

“As all of you know he was sent to the Nazi Concentration Camps, later giving up his life for a fellow-inmate, a Jew,” he said. “At that same altar (at that same church in Rome) a German Jew had an apparition of the Blessed Mother.  He later converted.”
