Day 13 Churches in Trastevere

Day 13 - Churches in Rome


Christ with Mary on the throne



We started our day with Mass at Santa Maria in Trastevere.  It is one of the oldest Churches in Rome and is dedicated to Our Lady.

We then walked to Santa Cecilia to pray at her tomb.  We spent some time looking what is beleived to be the remains on the St. Cecilia's house located underneath the main part of the Church.

Finally, we stopped at the Church of St. Bartholomew the Apostle on an island in the middle of the Tiber River.  In 2000, it was dedicated by St. John Paul II in honor of the Martyrs of the 20th and 21st Century and holds many relics of these great saints.
