Basilica of San Tommaso Apostolo (St. Thomas the Apostle) in Ortona

Inside this church is the tomb of St. Thomas the Apostle.

We came to pray for every Thomas, living and deceased.

You can see the outside was reconstructed in 1947 after having been blown up a few days before Christmas, 1943. 

Since September 6, 1258 the bones of St. Thomas the Apostle have been kept here.
