I loved my time at the Portiuncula – a Sample Testimonial

Stepping into the Portiuncula, tucked inside the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, was like entering a place of peace. Surrounded by flickering candlelight and soft whispers of prayers, I couldn’t help but feel connected to all the pilgrims who had come here before seeking solace and renewal.

The Portiuncula holds a special place in my heart as the spot where St. Francis received his calling and started the Franciscan Order. It’s crazy to think that this unassuming chapel played such a big role in shaping his vision of simplicity and love for God. Kneeling before the altar, I felt a deep sense of gratitude for being in such a sacred space and drawing strength from St. Francis’s legacy. The Portiuncula isn’t just a chapel; it’s a significant place where a pilgrim can encounter God’s love and find peace in the midst of life’s chaos.
