    RAVENNA, Italy: displays a blend of Graeco-Roman tradition with Christian innovations. It was established in the reign of Augustus as the port of Classis. Following the barbarian invasions which destroyed Rome, the emperor Honorius made Ravenna his capital. His sister, Galla Placidia, lived in Ravenna during her widowhood in the early 5th century & made it a centre of Christian art.

    The new commandment of Jesus, ”Love one another as I have love you’ calls each one of us to be a good shepherd, a caring, giving, concerned and involved person, a person aware of and involved in easing the pains of those around us.
