Oh dear, I was looking for this one (laxly) :) First read about it in an Alitalia magazine onboard a plane from London to Rome but never really went for it since I came to BsAs. Then my younger brother who is a monk asked me to burn a candle for him in a 'pope's' church, without specifying which one. Someone navigated me to the Cathedral, where I burned the first, and someone there navigated me to the previous place, until I ended up burning 4 or 5 of them, the last one in Flores. Interesting anyway.
