Catholic custom: the maniple...

A blessed object, it is sacred.

I am doing my dissertation on St Philip Neri's iconography and would like to know more about the painting. Would you be so kind and tell me where you found this painting and if there is more information about it somewhere? This would be a great help. Thanks in advance!

You'll need a rental car to get there.

It's on the Isola Sacra near Fiumicino. I think the place is called Sant'Ippolito. It's in the church there - the complex is surrounded by a wall.

And, go to the FSSP sacristy at Santissima Trinita dei Pellegrini and ask Giancarlo to show you the St. Neri paintings.
