Only the Pope has the authority to designate a church building a "basilica." This is an honorary title given to churches with especially noteworthy architecture, and Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica is only one of three churches in Chicago with such an esteemed degree. The Renaissance building was completed in 1900 after ten years of construction. Inside, an absolutely magnificent barrel-vaulted ceiling wraps around a high altar that is made entirely of Carrara marble.
