In this, the final installment highlighting my recent pilgrimage to Rome, I share some final sites: Florence Italy (so not in Rome), the Vatican Museum, and Castle de San Angelo.
Santa Maria in Portico
This church contains the body of St. John Leonardi. Pray for us!
Castle d San Angelo
Castle d San Angelo, formerly known as Hadrian's Mausoleum, was built to house the remains of Emperor Hadrian. The fortress was used as a safeplace during Christian times for the Pope and this is also the site of a famous apparition by St. Michael the Archangel.
While this series of posts is on my recent trip to Rome, I could not pass up the chance to take a high speed train from Rome's Termini station up to Florence. Florence is so far the most beautiful city I have ever been to, and I would highly encourage everyone to visit this city in their lifetime. It is truly a masterpiece.

The Vatican Museum
And the grand finale - the Vatican Musuem. There is no greater museum in the world. If I were to post all of the images that I had, I would be unable to do. This is just a small piece of the Vatican Museum.

Thank you for everyone who prayed for me to have a safe and prayerful journey. I prayed for all of you while visiting these holy sites and I look forward to again returning to this truly amazing city - the center of the Church and of the world. Thank you immensely for your support and interest in my journey. I hope to continue visiting more holy sites and sharing them with all of you.
