In recent decades, Americans in Rome have revived an ancient Christian custom: the daily pilgrimage to dozens of Rome's most striking churches during Lent and Easter Week. Along this historical and spiritual pathway, pilgrims encounter hidden artistic wonders and treasured Christian commentaries while also confronting the great mysteries of the Christian faith through a program of biblical and early Christian readings. The itinerary of the Roman station church pilgrimage offers Christians an opportunity to reflect on their religion and ponder the quality of their discipleship.
In Roman Pilgrimage, best-selling theologian George Weigel, art historian Elizabeth Lev, and photographer Stephen Weigel guide listeners along this religious and aesthetic journey with gorgeous photographs and revealing essays on the pilgrimage's art, architecture, and liturgies.
A reminder of the call for renewal and conversion during each Lenten season, Roman Pilgrimage reflects on the deepest truths of Christianity and the exquisite beauty of the station churches of Rome.

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed George Weigel's masterful biography of Pope Saint John Paul ll "Witness To Hope", I knew this would be a good book but Weigel's brilliant Biblical commentaries have truly enriched my Lenten spiritual journey. Coupled with that are the wonderful description of the Roman martyrs and their Station Churches and the devotions associated with them, so important in the development of the Faith!
It's a wonderful book to listen to but also to read as the photographs are stunning!
