NAC and the Stational Churches of Rome

One of our friends here at the NLM is Fr. James DeViese, an American priest who, as a seminarian, studied in Rome at the North American College and continues now also as a priest to study in Rome -- he is also no stranger to Ss. Trinita, the FSSP parish in Rome.

Fr. DeViese has been particularly involved this year with the organization of the North American College's Lenten stational churches pilgrimage which takes English speaking participants through each of the various Roman stational churches for each day of Lent -- excluding Sundays.

You can read more about it here, including Fr. DeViese's own thoughts: CNS STORY: US seminarians begin Lenten pilgrimage to Rome's ancient churches

Today's station is at the church of San Giorgio in Velabro, whose titular Cardinals have included Alfons Maria Cardinal Stickler and John Henry Cardinal Newman.
