HomeBlogChanging candles at St. Peter’s Basilica

On my recent trip to Rome, I got the answer after celebrating Mass while returning to the sacristy.  As as I passed by the high altar, I was surprised by what I saw.  As they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words”.  Thanks to my iPhone, I snapped the following picture.
