Lent at the Heart of the Church: The Roman Stational Liturgy

Holy Mass in Santa Maria Maggiore (St. Mary Major) on Wednesday, February 21st. The church was one of the first built to celebrate the Virgin Mary, and it houses a reliquary said to contain wood from the Holy Crib of the Nativity of Jesus.

Praying at the tombs and places of martyrdom of the saints and martyrs of the early Church throughout Rome truly ‘brings us into a real, living, breathing relationship with the Church through her saints.’
