Septuagesima Sunday: 2023

We are back at it again. The Lenten Roman Station Church itinerary begins today with Septuagesima Sunday.

We travel outside the walls of the city of Rome and head to the Minor Papal Basilica of Saint Lawrence outside-the-walls, or in Italian, San Lorenzo fuori le mura.

The YouTube video is processing on YouTube and will be available 5 PM Rome time.

In the video, we see a beautiful portico (porch) and we visit the tombs of St Lawrence and Blessed Pius IX (Pio Nono).

See you later on YouTube — in the meantime, enjoy these photos of the Roman Station Church for Septuagesima Sunday. I just love visiting the churches of Rome with you!
