Many years ago I was a great admirer of St Francis of Assisi, but the most spiritual of these were the Capuchin, and I looked into becoming one. [the cappuccino coffee is named after the color of their clothes.]. Sadly I was not a catholic and life led me in other directions. in 1631 the remains of thousands of Capuchin friars were exhumed and transferred from the friary on the Via dei Lucchesi to the crypt. The bones were arranged along the walls in varied designs There is a plague that reads... What you are now, we used to be. What we are now, you will be.
