Greeting from the Rector

"Every year millions of visitors enter the Basilica of Sancta Maria ad Martyres, the Pantheon of Rome. Some do not know that it is a Christian church. Some are not Christians. Many do not belong to any religious faith. They are tourists. Tourists with a thousand faces, that seem to be brought along by the flow of things. They enter to visit a monument of ancient Rome, a monument of the past to which, with difficulty, they attribute a value in the present. The Pantheon, on the other hand, still has its own life. It speaks to the present and has a future. The Pantheon still resounds with songs and hymns to God. It is still a place of meditation and research. It is still a temple. So a simple tourist visit to the Pantheon can open up to the surprise of the encounter with the Basilica of Sancta Maria ad Martyres. And a simple visitor, a distracted tourist, can suddenly find himself a pilgrim. The Pantheon is capable of this surprise. The Pantheon wants you as a pilgrim, the protagonist of a journey that sees you rediscover who you are and what you love, what what you hope and what you want. Look up: don't just see, observe! Stones, statues, marbles, a monumental dome, an ancient design, old puzzles of light, space, luminous stars… Become a pilgrim of yourself. Seek and find yourself. Let yourself be searched and let yourself be found. As for us, we would just like to be your travel companions.”
