Pilgrimage to Rome: Part I

I would like to thank everyone who sent in suggestions and helpful advice to me as I traveled to Rome for Holy week.  A few weeks ago I shared my itinerary, and with most plans, I didn't stick to it.  Fortunately, I ended up visiting far more places than even I had planned.  Sometimes breaking from the plan is for the better.

I was able to visit such a number of holy places (nearly 25 different basilicas) and I prayed for the intentions of all of my readers while there.  I also visited Florence and had a brief trip to Pompeii.

I am now safety back in the United States after being able to visit some of the most sacred relics: the Holy Stairs, all 4 of the Holy Doors, relics of the True Cross, the tombs of Ss Peter and Ss Paul, the chains of both of those saints, the crib in which our Lord was born, the Pillar of Flagellation, some pieces of the Crown of Thorns, the sign that hung above our Lord on the cross, the bodies/tombs of many saints including St. Philip Neri, St. Helena, Blessed Fra Angelico, St. Pius X, St. Catherine of Siena, the head of St. Agnes, the skull of St. Valentine, and so much else.

Over the next few weeks I will be sharing some of my experiences and photos from this trip.  Please stay tuned!

Here are some of the photos as part of a very small preview of what is to come:
