Our Pilgrimage to Rome

We attended the Papal Audience in the plaza of Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome and were fortunate to see Pope Francis close up as he stopped right in front of us in his pope-mobile. We also toured the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel and the Scavi tour where we prayed for your intentions at the tomb of Saint Peter.
On Sunday September 22 we attended Divine Liturgy at Saint Maron Maronite  Church in Rome offered by His Beatitude Patriarch Beshara Rai. After the Liturgy we greeted His Beatitude and the Bishops, clergy and parishioners present.

Our day trip and guided tour to Assisi was awesome as we saw and reverenced the body of Saint Clare and visited the original church called the Portiuncula  located within the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli.  We also prayed at the tomb of Saint Francis in his Basilica in Assisi.
