Praying for Vocations in the Eternal City

Fr. Pius Pietrzyk, OP wrote me from Rome and said he will offer a Mass (in the Dominican Rite) for vocations to the Order of Preachers  at the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore on the Feast of St. Pius V (old calendar: May 5) where the remains of St. Pius V are located.  If you are in Rome and would like to attend, please email me:  vocations@dominicanfriars.org   Fr. Pius is studying Canon Law at the University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) in Rome where a new Rector was recently installed.  Thank you Fr. Pius!  Please pray for vocations to the Order of Preachers.

UPDATE: HERE ARE THE PHOTOS (n.b. the altar where St. Pius V's remains are located is being restored, so they had to use this altar)
