Have you ever tossed a coin or two into a fountain and made a wish? Did it come true?
I have. Long time ago In Rome at the Fontana di Trevi. I tossed a coin and I made the typical wish to return to the eternal city once again. I was there in a pilgrimage to see pope John Paul II and attend a beatification of a priest very dear to me. The wish came true ten years later when I traveled to Rome for the canonisation of the same priest, now a saint. That second time I didn’t tossed a coin at the fontana di Trevi. More than 20 years have passed and I never have traveled to Rome again. I guess the Fontana has nothing to do with it. My family circumstances prevent me from traveling now. I’m tied to my home. But circumstances may change and I would like to be back there with more time to see the wonders of the city. I hope I will fulfil my wish someday even without a tossed coin.
