Basilica dei SS. Ambrogio e Carlo (Sant'Ambrogio e Carlo al Corso)
The following photos are taken from the special area in the back of the Church dedicated to St. Charles Borromeo. While the body of St. Charles Borromeo is in Milan, Italy in the Duomo, his heart is preserved for veneration on this altar in Rome.
While present before this relic, I was able to reconsecrate CatechismClass.com to St. Charles Borromeo. St. Charles is the patron saint of CatechismClass.com. St. Charles, pray for us!

The Basilica of St. Mary of the Altar of Heaven (Ara Coeli) is a beautiful Basilica set high on a hill in Rome. From the front of the church, one can see a breathtaking view of the city with more domes and Crosses than can be realistically counted. Inside, is a true gem.
The shrine is known for housing relics belonging to Saint Helena, mother of Emperor Constantine, Pope Honorius IV, and St. Juniper.
