    Who? Where?

    Aha! I had to look this up to see if I was right…yes! It is the tomb of St. Gaspar del Bufalo, founder of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. It is found in the church of Sta. Maria in Trivio, which is just to the left of the Trevi Fountain if you are looking at it head-on.

    I remembered this especially because when I was visiting Rome recently, I happened upon this tomb and was surprised, because the order he founded is especially active in the area of the world where I grew up, the portion of Ohio north of Cincinnati.

    In fact, the former Motherhouse for the Sisters of the Precious Blood in Maria Stein, Ohio houses the second largest collection of relics in the United States. It is worth visiting!

    It’s so cool that for a random picture Fr. Z posts, some reader has been there and knows something about it. And (in this case) has been there recently.

    I realize that in our trip to Rome 5 years ago we hardly even scratched the surface, much less really got into the thick of it. I want to get back and “do it right”, but resources seem to be lacking. Tell you what: you pray I can get back there, I will pray that you do. Deal?
