Wow, I wish I know about this when I was in Rome in 2006. I didn't even know about Rome's the stational churches back then. I really should go back.

Also, I stayed in Orvieto, and apparently St. Thomas lived there awhile (I think he composed the feast of Corpus Christi and worked on the Contra Gentiles in Orvieto) and was at the same church there that my host family attended. I didn't even know until just recently!
