Basilica of St. Paul

Basilica of St. Paul

The Basilica of St. Paul, along with the one of St. Peter, has been visited for over two millennia by more pilgrims than any other place on earth.  Every five years, bishops from all over the world make the Visita ad limina Apostolorum—the Visit to the Tombs of the apostles—to renew their commitment in the service of Christ and of his Church.

The Basilica of St. Mary Major

Basilica of St. Mary Major


The Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome was consecrated by Pope Sixtus III in 435 to commemorate the Council of Ephesus (431), where the Virgin Mary was declared Mother of God.  Being the first Church in Rome to be dedicated to the Blessed Mother, it was called Major.  It is also known as Our Lady of Snow, from a miracle attributed to the Virgin Mary.

The Pope

The Pope

The Pope is the head of the Catholic Church.   As Jesus said: “You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church”  (Matthew 16:18).  He is called “Pope,” from the Greek pappas, meaning father, because he is the father of all the faithful.  He also holds theses titles:  Vicar of Christ, Bishop of Rome, Successor of St. Peter, Supreme Pontiff, Patriarch of the West, Primate of Italy, Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Roman Province, Sovereign of the State of Vatican City, and Servus Servorum Dei (Servant of the Servants of God).
