Pilgrimage to Rome: Trip Itinerary

St. Peter's Basilica, taken by Ricardo André Frantz, 2005

I am pleased to announce that I will be participating in one of my life long goals: spending Holy Week in Rome.  All in all, this will be an even more significant trip for me since this a Jubilee Year and the Holy Doors will be open.  As a result, I ask for all of you to please post below any prayer intentions that you have.  I will bring these with me and offer these in prayer while visiting all of the 4 Major Basilicas and the other churches in the Eternal City.

While it is subject to change, my tentative schedule is as follows.  Please do feel free to make any recommendations.  While I may not be able to blog each day as I visit these Christian marvels, I will share all photos within a short time of my return.  And your intentions will be in my prayers.

I ask for your prayers for a safe trip and one of worthy preparation in order to celebrate the great Feast of the Resurrection on Easter.
