Pope visits Rome’s St Mary Major Basilica

OSSROM94418_ArticoloWithout deviating from Pope Francis’ usual custom of visiting St Mary Major ahead of his apostolic visit, this time too the Pope made a private visit to the Basilica of Saint Mary in Rome. The private visit made by the Pope was as part of his apostolic visit to Mexico. He visited the Basilica and prayed before the icon of Maria Salus Populi Romani.

After visiting the St Mary Major, he made a journey to Rome’s Cathedral, the Archbasilica of St John Lateran, where he heard the confessions of several priests.
