A Rome parish...


Everybody has their own favorite churches in Rome. This is one of mine, St. Joachim in Prati. It was built for Pope Leo XIII (have you seen the old video of him in the old phaeton carriage on the internet?).
The fa├žade reads: ORBIS CATHOLICI ROMAE DIVINIS PRO JURIBUS REPARANDIS ADORATIO.

Is this Church just in a neighborhood? I think I may have been to mass here. Does it have an adoration chapel with statue of St. Teresa?

I don't remember as it has been years since I've been inside this church. But it's located near the Lepanto metro stop on line A, northeast of the Vatican, in the neighborhood called Prati.
