  • Well, that time I was young too and a late winter afternoon I walked into this church. Along with Glory, without real cuz it almost at closing time. My father had taught me unconditional love for the city and left a crowd of recollections, and yet I felt disjointed and ripped off and I had decided to leave school and go to the army, although I could shift the lever. Suddenly, unexpectedly, the sound of the organ as a thrill or a prayer. Unforgettable as my dad. World history is layered on top of each other. That of Rome more, with its infinite wonders of previous steps through time. Here at the beginning of the 3rd century there was the imperial villa of Septimius Severus, then of Elagabalus and after private residence of Helena, mother of Constantine. Transformed, where it is today, in the House for the God of the Christians. As faith is in your heart and not in scientific evidence, if the story tells of Elena sent to Jerusalem to look for evidence of the passion of Christ (3 pieces of the cross .1 nail, some land of Mount Calvary and part of the inscription INRI = Jesus Nazarenus Rex Judeorum), I like to believe that in the chapel of the relics of this stupendous Basilica , little tourist and very welcoming, there is still an echo of his sacrifice for love of us. Enough to whisper at least one thanks to life. alfredodenicolais

  • Many relics of the passion of Jesus, a must visit if you are Christians. The Church was built from Santa Elena

  • This church deserve a visit. Has an amazing collection of relics. Here is a part of the cross of Jesus, St. Thomas's finger, 2 thorns, 1 nail etc. Anyway, if it's true, I don't know. The Guide testified by documents, by historical data it is possible to say that the relics are true. Whether or not they are, frankly, don't have all that importance. The importance is to relive the story of Jesus Christ and rethink our postures.
