Roma – Pictures 02

My next stop today was at Sant’ Andrea al Qurinale. To my surprise and delight, I found the reconstructed rooms of St. Stanislaus Kostka.

In his room, they had a copy of the Roman Missal. If you look closely, they replaced many of the “S” with “J”. For example: “Jefum” would be “Jesum” today, “clementiffime” would be clemintissime”. I’m not sure why it is printed that way, but I’m looking into it. You can see more in the picture below.

In the church San Bernardo Alle Terme, there is the tomb of Karolo Finelli, a medieval artist. He might be a long lost relative.

Just below the Angelicum (Pontifical College of St. Thomas Aquinas), there is the church of S. Caterina da Siena a Magnapoli. All the times that I have traveled to Rome, this is the first time that I have found it open.The Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary are now stations at this and another church in Rome. I had the pleasure of walking in on Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament and met Mother Adela Galindo as I was leaving.
