Rome is at the heart of the Catholic Church and has been for 2000 years ever since St Peter came here. His body and the body of St Paul still lie here in the Basilicas of St Peter and St Paul respectively. The successor of Peter – Pope Francis – today also lives in the Vatican and the pilgrims that flock to see the holy places of Rome and to glimpse the Vicar of Christ himself are numerous.
Whether the pilgrims come to follow in the footsteps of the apostles, or to visit the sites where the Roman martyrs attested to the truth of the Faith in their own blood and suffering, pilgrims to Rome cannot help but be touched by the sheer weight of Christian history and testimony to Christ.
Substantia Travel & Tours can arrange all manner of visits to pilgrimmage sites whether they be related to the
papacy, apostles, martyrs, early Christians, religious orders, the Virgin Mary, or simply for the upcoming Jubilee Year of Mercy ordered by the Pope to begin on 8th December 2015 – the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary.
