(Vatican Radio) Early Sunday morning, Pope Francis, as is usual following every voyage, went to the Basilica of Saint Mary Major.

The Holy Father brought a bouquet of white roses as an offering, which he presented at the icon of Mary Salus Populi Romano. During the visit, Pope Francis remained in prayerful silence before the image of the Virgin for more than twenty minutes.
