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 Pieta of Michelangelo

The Pieta of Michelangelo

When im reading some article about Jubilee, I saw a lot of pictures there.  All the pictures a saw were all beautiful.  That’s why I was inspired to put some of the pictures in my blog. 

When you visit the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, you will see The Pieta of Michelangelo there.  Even I don’t see it in real, the picture itself says it is so beautiful.  And when you are looking at it, you will say that it was a very beautiful creation.  I wish I can visit the St. Peter in real … 🙂
