|Marker of Nero's Circus - Site of the Execution of St. Peter and the First Martyrs of Rome|
Sunday, April 10, 2011
As we enter the final week of Lent before Palm Sunday, we are back again at St. Peter's in the Vatican for today's station church. When you walk through the portals of St. Peter's basilica, you catch your breath. The beauty is overwhelming. The sanctity of the place is palpable and the relics of the popes and saints that lie within only add to the transcendent peace of this holy church.
