There were 12 Christian Basilicas here.
Then came malaise, an economic crisis and the sword of Islam.
At the end of the 4th century, this place was rolling. It was a city protected by impressive city walls constructed by the Emperor Theodosius.
Carthage boasted a stadium with a capacity of up to 70,000, an amphitheatre
for 40,000, a theatre for 10,000, thermal baths, religious buildings, 12 Christian Basilicas and a major aqueduct.
A great honor to pray here amid the rubble. That these places of prayer might one day again be restored. It will take a miracle and the conversion of the locals. It has happened before.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
