US clergy in Rome divide time between chapel and TV room


US priests and seminarians in Rome went back and forth between their chapels and their television sets on Tuesday, praying for the victims of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington and trying to understand what was happening at home.

The scene was the same among US seminarians at North American College, US priests studying in Rome and living at Casa Santa Maria, and US priests and bishops working at the Vatican and living at Villa Stritch.

"A lot of us were in the chapel praying and in front of the television, dividing our time between the two," said Archbishop John P. Foley, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, who lives at Villa Stritch.
