update

We have been visiting a number of chuches in Rome during our pilgrimage. Here are some photos.

The church of St Nicholas in Carcere. For more information see this previous post.

The exterior of S. Maria in Cosmedin. It is a composite monument which has been greatly transformed through the centuries, and was built on the foundation of temples dedicated to Hercules and Ceres.


The interior of the same church.

S. Maria in Cosmedin houses the relics of St. Valentine.

Mass in the church of San Benedetto in Piscinula.


The little room which can be seen at the back in the picture is the room St. Benedict lived in while in Rome. This is where he lived his life of prayer and penance and was inspired to leave the world and become a monk. This tiny room, then, was the place which gave birth to the rise of Western monasticism.

The Transalpine Redemptorist confreres with the Heralds of the Gospel who look after the church of San Benedetto in Piscinula.

- A pilgrim.

Loved all the beautiful photos. Wonderful to see such devout Liturgy. (And a picture of the entrance to St Benedict's room!) May God bless and protect The Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer on their pilgrimage; may Our Lady walk with them and may they all receive many indulgences and grow in great holiness. May they pray for their fellow Catholics in Australia.

Father, one of these days in the future when the kids are a bit older you'll have to let us know when you go on a Rome pilgrimage so maybe we can tag along! There's so much to see and to learn about our Faith and Rome seems to be an eternal *classroom* !!
