Santa Sabina

On my last full day in Italy, I visited the church of Santa Sabina. This is one really old church–build between 422 and 432 by a Dalmatian priest on the site of the house of St. Sabina, who suffered martrydom around the year 126.  It was given to St. Dominic in 1219, and is the headquarters of the Dominicans to this day.  The Pope will celebrate Ash Wednesday next week at this church.
