My family rebuilt this church
Jun 2017 • Family
After WWII my family who was prominent in this area rebuilt the church from the rubble of the original church. Inside hangs a plaque with the name of my relative. It was very sentimental to visit this church and the area. The church has a gorgeous simplicity about it.

Often country churches in more remote places are neglected. The great Italian style and splendid line of Santa Maria a Fiume is pure architecturally and spiritually. Built in the later part of the twelve century she occupies an area which was once the site of a pagan temple. Destroyed in WW II and rebuilt retaining some original elements from the rubble, like those same Roman stones.

There is just something about a church being by the river that makes it magical. Inside, I was moved by the subtle vibration of ancient prayers. Enriched by the presence of the miraculous and truly beautiful, serene and simple Santa Maria a Fiume. She is naturally seated with child in arm, made out of cedar and richly painted.

It is said that the tradition of honoring Mary with devotions for the whole month of May originated in Italy. Make the journey to this unique sanctuary anytime and if possible visit during the "Marian Month" for a special celebration.
