August 5 is the feast of the dedication of the basilica of St. Mary Major, also called Our Lady of the Snows. I visited it in 2003 on our pilgrimage for the beatification of Fr. Alberione. It's a beautiful church. From there we walked to St. Clement church (which has excavations under the church we weren't able to see) and St. John Lateran. The Holy Stairs are nearby that.
In October I'll be going to Rome for a meeting of the bursars (my other job), so I'm starting to look forward to that.
