    This looks suspiciously like the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, the “Rome of the West.” St. Louis got that nickname because of all the religious institutions that had their western USA headquarters there. Just to name one, the old Jesuit novitiate building still stands on the banks of the nearby Missouri River town of Florissant.

    Great observation!

    Aha, been beaten to it. This is only a “Rome shot” in an ecclesiological sense, not the geographical and peregrine sense in which one had always understood the title of this series!

    None the worse for that. There is a large church on an island in Paris whose new occupant may need reminding also constitutes a “Rome shot” – however rich its other symbolism.
