In the year 1345, King Casimar III the Great of Poland gave orders to build a church named Corpus Christi in honor of the Eucharistic miracle that was verified that same year. It had taken place in the village of Wawel, near Krakow. Some thieves broke into a little church(The Collegiate Church of All Saints), which was a short distance from Krakow. They forced their way into the tabernacle and stole the monstrance, which contained consecrated Hosts.

Liz Knight lives in Rome and works as an attorney and a travel writer. Her story of how she landed in Rome is a great one; one that we're all familiar with. It goes like this, traveled to Rome with family in high-school, fell in love with Rome, moved there to live after college.
Liz has dedicated herself to two jobs. She's both an attorney and travel writer. That translates into wonderful articles about travel, not just in Italy, but throughout Europe.
On the show we talked about her fun and well written blog Romeifyouwantto.com (sing the name of her blog and I'll give you 52 guesses to get the name of the band that wrote the song who inspired her blog's name). It's packed with articles about all over Italy like Puglia, Tuscany, Venice, and of course Rome. You will also find articles about Krakow and Auschwitz.
Liz is full of life, full of surprises, is a great writer, a great attorney, and a great guest on the show.
