Come and Discover:
The mighty dome of St Peter's Basilica has surveyed the cityscape of Rome for over four hundred years, seeing kingdoms rise and fall, and witnessing occupations, sacks and the slow indifference of secularism. Its roots have seen even more history, from St Peter's brutal execution at the hands of a greedy emperor to the fragmentation of the faith during the Protestant reformation. Yet this basilica, the "game-face" of the Catholic Church, shows no sign of its sufferings in its splendid design and decoration.
The magnificently unified decoration belies the many years of conflict it has survived. This is why this Easter Monday we will close our series with the glorious basilica of St Peter -- its history, its structure, and its role as a beacon of beauty -- to remind us to hope even in the darkest times. Please join me to celebrate my favorite church in the urbe and the orbe!
