The Year of Mercy: Spiritual works of mercy
Michael A. Hayes
There are over 900 churches in Rome, and all of them have their own story and their own character. At one end of the famous Via Giulia – named for Pope Julius II – is the mighty church of Sant’ Andrea – the church of the Florentine community – at the other end is the much smaller church of Santa Maria dell’Orazione e Morte (St Mary of Prayer and the Dead) built in the 16th century and rebuilt in 1733.
