When in Rome for the Feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas

Most of Saint Thomas Aquinas is in his tomb in the French town of Toulouse. But the Dominican basilica of Santa Maria sopra Minerva has the relic of his arm.

It is hidden away in the dark side chapel, Cappella Carafa. However, on January 28th, you can go into the chapel to venerate the relic.
