CWN Editor's Note: Upon his return from a weekend visit to Dublin for the World Meeting of Families, Pope Francis followed his usual practice, stopping to pray before the icon of the Virgin Mary, Salus Populi Romani, in the basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome. The Pope also visited a side chapel in the church of St. Augustine, to pray at the tomb of St. Monica, whose feast day the Church was celebrating on August 27.
