The History





















"No church has so magnificent an approach as does St Peter's. As we move across the Vatican square before us, we are enfolded in the lofty embrace of Bernini's colonnade. Marble pillars that are meant to welcome us into the spiritual experience of the basilica itself. One hundred and forty saints stand atop, visible assurance of the power of faith to transform us, and signaling by their mute presence, sort of an inanimate guard of honor, that we are moving onto sacred ground."

- Sister Wendy
