Papa Pio IX prega davanti all'altare di Santa Maria Maggiore a Roma
"Pope Pius IX prays before the altar of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome"...
The first major stop on my first visit to Rome was The Patriarchal Basilica of St. Mary Major, which reigns as an authentic jewel in the crown of Roman churches. Its beautiful treasures are of inestimable value and represent the Church's role as the cradle of Christian artistic civilization in Rome. For nearly sixteen centuries, St. Mary Major has held its position as a Marian shrine par excellence and has been a magnet for pilgrims from all over the world who have come to the Eternal City to experience the beauty, grandeur, and holiness of the Basilica.
