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.
Fast forward, a Pope had this basilica built over this chapel in honor of the good Saint.
A sneak peak at the interiors of the Chapel.
Do say a prayer for Saint Francis and for a loved one.
