Pilgrimage Part 6: Monte Sant Angelo

Monte Sant Angelo

This morning we were picked up by a driver to go to this famous place where St Michael the Archangel appeared.
Inside the cave, where he appeared, are beautiful altars and a chapel of Adoration.

Behind the altar is a smaller alcove covered with glass/perspex and an old statue of St Michael. People drop into the opening at the top petitions, donations and even rosary beads.

There is an order of monks that looks after the cave. Unfortunately, we just arrived at the end of Mass.

A nun at the door takes offerings for Masses. We left some Mass offerings for our families and one for our prayer group.

As before we touched our “relic handkerchiefs” to the walls of the cave. We prayed for our prayer group intentions before the Blessed Sacrament in the Adoration chapel.

It is a beautiful and humble place. There are no walls; it is still a cave.
