The Great Lent in the Roman Church will begin on Wednesday, February 26 at Mount Aven. In the Eastern churches, the fourteenth day of fasting begins on Monday. It is about 7 km from the Vatican. The carnival begins this year with the Papa Benedictine Monastery in the procession to the Basilica of Saint Sabina, in a car ride to the nearby Aventine Hill. At the end of the orchestra, the pope will perform the Mass of Mass in the Basilica of San Sabina. The Holy Mass will be followed by the Mass.
The Pope will deliver the message in the midst of the Divine sacrifice. Monsignor Guido Marini, who is responsible for the Vatican’s liturgy, coordinates Wednesday’s services. Visiting and praying at major churches in the city, and participating in the Divine Sacrifice is a tradition in the ancient Roman city as part of fasting. The monastery on the Mount Aventrine and the Basilica of San Sabina is also the center of the oldest Benedictine monastic community in Rome. Following this ancient tradition, Peter’s successor comes to Mount Averen to celebrate the Feast of the Eucharist today.
