Inside Santa Maria Maggiore

The Roman basilica Santa Maria Maggiore, so called because it is a great (Papal) church as well as the largest of the 26 churches in Rome dedicated to the Virgin Mary, is a beautiful, imposing building with a mysterious history. Even more mysterious is how a group of unruly Texans were allowed into this church to baptise one of their own. When you're in a foreign land it's best to just smile, nod, refrain from asking too many questions; and in Italy that goes doubly so.
