The Chiesa del Sacro Cuore di Gesù in Prati, also known as Chiesa del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio, is a catholic place of worship in the centre of Rome, rising in the rione Prati, hosting the parish with the same name, entrusted to the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart.The church, designed by engineer Giuseppe Gualandi, is sometimes referred as the little Milan Cathedral, due to its rich neogothic style.HistoryIn 1893, the Missionary of the Sacred Heart Victor Jouët, born in Marseille, founded in Rome the Associazione del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio delle Anime del Purgatorio (Italian for "Association of the Sacred Heart of the Suffrage of the Purgatory Souls"), having the aim to spread the worship to the Sacred Heart and to the Virgin Mary. The former oratory of the Association rose in Via dei Cosmati; a second one, used between 1896 and 1914, was located in Lungotevere Prati, into a ground that the founder had bought in order to build a bigger church, whose foundation stone was blessed in 1894 by Joseph-Jean-Louis Robert, Bishop of Marseille.Put Chiesa del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio and other Rome attractions into our Rome vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.
