May Kwento Ako #5 : La Porziuncula

In recent years, I have stumbled upon Roman Catholic churches with incredible stories. Upon entry, I immediately saw the sign that photographs are not allowed.  I asked politely and luckily, was granted permission to take these photographs.

Below are photos of La Porziuncula  ( meaning a little portion of land ) or La Porziuncola, a chapel built in the 4th century which was donated to Saint Francis of Assisi sometime in the 13th century.  GGTPE9096

Fast forward, a Pope had this basilica built over this chapel in honor of the good Saint.

Do say a prayer for Saint Francis and for a loved one.

Looking forward to 65 Meanwhile, here is “May Kwento Ako” series ... ( in Filipino means ‘I have a story’ ). This Blog was created as a journal of my discoveries. Hopefully, in my old age, i will be able to go back to these and be glad that i did what i did.
