THE CARDINAL
JAMES MICHAEL HARVEY
 
Archpriest
 
“I feel a strong desire to continue on the path forged by the archpriests who have preceded me and by the attentive and zealous Benedictine monks past and present, to open wide the Door of Faith, to throw open the doors of this venerable Basilica, of this “dwelling place of God built on the waters of Baptism”, on the banks of the Tiber, so that all men, as Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI urged, can be led “out of the desert, towards the place of life, towards friendship with the Son of God, towards Him who gives us life and life in abundance.”
(Motu Proprio Porta Fidei, 2).

Area Espositiva


The current gallery, located in the sacristy and in two adjoining rooms, contains precious paintings from the old basilica, about forty works from the 13th to 19th centuries, some copies of rare documents including an illustrated Carolingian Bible from the 8th century and various engravings of the fire of 1823.
 
 
SMALL CEMETERY OF THE MONKS
 
A number of Benedectine monks are buried in a hidden cemetery (not visitable) beneath the Basilica at the left entrance door. Among them is one of the first Australian Aboriginal religious in Rome, Francis Xavier Conaci, a novice from the Benedectine Monastery in New Norcia, Western Australia, who died in Roma on 10 October 1853. There is a boomerang image in the marble floor just outside the left door, near where Francis is buried.
