Feast of the Dedication of the Liberian Basilica

...better known as "St. Mary Major" (or Santa Maria Maggiore), the location came because of a dream had by both the owner of the land atop Rome's Esquiline hill and Pope Liberius. Each year, the Basilica re-enacts the August snowfall with a cascade of flower petals. Rome Reports has this video showing the event:

Thanks, Father. This is very educational, something we were unaware of and what a beautiful basillica and celebration!
