Shrine in Anzio: Basilica of St. Teresa...


In Anzio, just south of Rome, there's a lovely shrine up overlooking the city with a spectacular view of the sea. It was constructed in the 1930s under the reign of Pius XI, of blessed memory. See their site here: http://www.carmelitaniroma.it/Objects/Pagina.asp?ID=5

What's the rule on the clerical collar: is it worn by seminarians or only those who have received the tonsure.

Try using your right hand when you try to bless something - though you should become a priest first (chuckle, chuckle). Thanks for the news and photos on your blog. Much appreciated.

yes, they have a restoration of that church going on now in eur and s. eugenio is now opus dei. great latin quotes in both.

the rule on the clerical collar is this: there is no rule. it is common to seey laymen (altar servers) wear it in rome and elsewhere as roman tradition is our model with the roman rite.

yes, the pose was not an immitation blessing, but an indication of the XI of Pius XI.
