Chiesa del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio, Rome
(4.3/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Sul Lungotevere Prati, this small Church holds a collection from chills: footprints left by the souls in purgatory who sought to contact the living. The Church was founded by father Victor Jouet in 1894, but after three years, a fire broke out which revealed the first amazing trace: a suffering face you saw on a wall. For father jouet there was little doubt, he was a soul of the afterlife that was trying to communicate with the living world and so began to collect books, textiles and pictures that they witnessed these contacts. Believe it or not, a visit is worth it without a doubt. The Church is really valuable and each exhibit has a history. 19:00 7:30 16:00 11:00,-schedule:-

  • In the Prati neighbourhood in Rome there is a church which is definitely worth a visit. It is the Church of the sacred heart of suffrage in the Gothic style. Besides the beautiful façade, you can admire the Interior Windows and quality canopy that leave you astonished and amazed by the beauty. It took a break after all that Baroque!

  • It's very impressive church to terms of its architecture. We have visited them only from the outside.

  • Unusual but quite pretty gothicish church
  • POOR PARISH ORGANIZATION! In many we prepared to visit day 15 August for the feast of our Lady assumed into heaven and the Church was closed (and it was all day!)! A shame! The only warning available was only a piece of paper attached to the door we read after arriving there with so much effort! If I could I wouldn't even have a star!
