  • Between here is important to see how God can be all over the place. The Church is the official shrine of divine mercy.

  • If from the Vatican to go towards Ânikula the shortest way, go past this majestic Temple is impossible. Guidebooks do not mention it, but we are interested in. In the midst of siesta Temple of the Holy Spirit proved to be opened, there was even a mass. The Interior is decorated very bright, solemnly and Baroque.

  • The odd name of the Church of the Holy Spirit in Sassii is due to the fact that the temple was built on the site of a home for pilgrims to Rome from Saxony, founded by the King of the Saxons in 8th century. The temple was built in the 12th century, later it merged with the nearby hospital of the Holy Spirit. Over the façade bothered Antonio da Sangallo (junior). Church Interiors amaze with dazzling Baroque decoration.

  • We attended 10AM mass at Santa Maria in Sassia on 9/6/15. Father Geno Sylva conducted the mass and gave a terrific homily. The church is located just a couple of blocks from St. Peter's Square. On this Sunday we made the very short walk to St. Peter's and prayed the Angelus with Pope Francis along with thousands of other pilgrims afterwards. This made for a wonderful and holy experience.
  • This is a very beautiful church very close to St. Peter's adorned with Renaissance frescoes and statuary. It also includes a niche featuring a large portrait of the late Pope John Paul II. We attended a Mass in Polish (4pm local time, Sunday) and wondered if the church had a special meaning for "Saint John Paul the Great" during his life. Worth a visit for certain.
  • Father Geno is awesome!!!
  • A place to see
  • beautiful church very close to St. Peter's
