15 May: The Z-Cam – St. Agnes

Right now (as of 1540 Rome time and 0840 EDT) I have the Z-Cam on.  It is pointed at the Church of St. Agnes "in agone", on the P.za Navona as I write. 

Given the kerfuffle about St. Agnes these days,… well… I thought perhaps you could pray to the great virgin marytr for the people involved while looking at a live shot of her church in Rome, at the place where some traditions have her martyrdom.  The skull of Agnes is in the church you see on the Z-Cam.

The Z-Cam might be looking somewhere else later, but will make sure we get to see Sant’Agnese often in the next days and weeks.

PS: As other choices I have Castel Sant’ Angelo, St. Peter’s, the Gianicolo, Sant’Andrea della Valle, Sant’Ivo with its strange cupola by Borromini, the Pantheon, and the Victor Emanuel monument.  Some of these can over lap.  This all might be more interesting than a shot of my desk while I work, right?
