The Chiesa del Sacro Cuore di Gesù in Prati, also known as Chiesa del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio is a catholic place of worship in the centre of Rome, rising in the rione Prati, hosting the parish with the same name, entrusted to theMissionaries of the Sacred Heart. The church, designed by engineer Giuseppe Gualandi, is sometimes referred as the little Milan Cathedral, due to its richneogothic style. In 1893, the Missionary of the Sacred Heart Victor Jouët, born in Marseille, founded in Rome the Associazione del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio delle Anime del Purgatorio, having the aim to spread the worship to the Sacred Heart and to the Virgin Mary.
