The Order's Pilgrimage to Rome for the Holy Year, 2016
 

On 16th and 17th of April 2016 the Constantinian Jubilee Year of Mercy celebrations took place in Rome. More than 600 Knights and friends of the Order came from all over Europe for this important event, convoked by the Grand Master HRH Don Pedro di Borbone delle Due Sicilie, Duke of Calabria.

These important events underlined the special relationship between the Order and the Roman Church, taking place in the Papal Basilicas of San Paolo Fuori le Mura and Santa Maria Maggiore. The official program provided for two Holy Masses, one lunch and a sacred music concert. Everyone who attended as a pilgrim was able to pass through the Holy Door and to receive the Papal indulgences granted to all who attended. Various authorities were present (Ambassadors, Military authorities, Civil authorities, and Orders representatives) and the Masses were celebrated by two of the most important Cardinals of the Catholic Church: His Eminence James Michael Cardinal Harvey, ArchPriest of the Papal Basilica of Saint Paul (on Saturday 16) and His Eminence Ludwig Cardinal Muller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith (on Sunday 17). His Eminence Dario Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, Grand Prior of the Order, was present and was invested by the Grand Master with the Collar of the Royal Order of San Gennaro. During the evening of Saturday 16th there was a concert of sacred music in the Basilica of San Vitale by the Cappella Musicale Liberiana, one of the most important Papal Choirs in Rome.

At the end of the mass in Saint Paul, the Grand Master appointed about one hundred new knights. At the end of the mass in Santa Maria Maggiore the Grand Master paid homage to the Virgin Mary in the Borghese Chapel with a floral tribute as a particular privilege; it is the same chapel where the Pope goes to pray in special private moments of his pontificate. Photographs of the ceremonies showing the most important moments of the celebrations follow here..
