St. Mary Major and Pope Francis

September 1721 – “At the Church of St. Mary Major, Paul of the Cross prayed a long time before the painting of the Blessed Virgin attributed to St. Luke. It was there he made the vow to promote devotion to the Passion in the hearts of the faithful and to strive to gather companions around himself.” [St. Paul of the Cross, Charles Almeras, p. 67]
