This is a 500 year old pilgrimage connecting some of Rome’s most important churches. Traditionally a full day walking pilgrimage, I’ve condensed this to a half day with access to a private car – because your soul is important, and so is your time. We’ll begin with a 7 a.m. Mass at Saint Peter’s Basilica. Our private car will then take us to visit the tomb of Saint Paul. Next we’ll see the footprints Christ left when He appeared to Peter as he was fleeing Rome and the tomb of Saint Sebastian. We’ll stop by the Cathedral of Rome and then pray before the relics of the Passion. Next we’ll pay a visit to several early martyrs of the Church, Saints Lawrence, Stephen, and Justin. We’ll end our pilgrimage in front of Salus Populi Romani, the Protectress of Rome.
The Scala Santa is closed for restoration until January 2019. We will still visit the church and you’ll have the opportunity to climb another staircase dedicated to prayer during this time.
