CWN Editor's Note: The Basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio is the site of the tomb of St. Celestine V, who resigned from the papacy in 1294. Pope Benedict XVI made a post-earthquake visit to the basilica and recalled, “I left on his tomb ... the pallium conferred upon me on the day of the inauguration of my pontificate.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
