Oldest Image of Christ's Apostles Found

Have I mentioned recently that I loved the brief time I spent in Rome a couple years back?  That the church historian in me could quite happily spend days and weeks and years there?  That I had a number of profound experiences with God there, including experiencing Ash Wednesday mass in St. Peter's?

I liked Rome.  A lot.

It made me smile, today, then, to see this headline in the BBC news about an ancient image of some of the apostles that was uncovered just recently in one of the catacombs in Rome.  (The catacombs are definitely on my list for the next trip.)
