Pope Pius IX at Santa Maria Maggiore #happy365 H365/42, a photo by Jenelle Blevins on Flickr.
I don’t know if today can really be a ‘happy365’ day. It has certainly been an interesting one that is for sure.
I previously posted my thoughts this morning just after the news of the resignation of our Holy Father broke. I still feel much the same.
We headed out to three churches and visited Maria Maggiore last. We headed down to the pray at the Crypt of the Nativity and in the crypt is this stunning statue of Pope Pius IX. It seemed fitting to post – the longest serving Pope kneeling in prayer.
