February 5: St. Agatha of the Goths...

This is the Rome parish of St. Agatha of the Goths (just behind the l'Angelicum). The tomb of Enrico Cardinal Dante is located in the crypt here (ask the sacristan to take you down to see it).

The body of St. Agatha lies in Catania, Sicily, but there is a great reliquary with some of her bones in this church in Rome which is displayed on the side altar. If you visit on a weekday, enter by the side door around the corner.
