This chapter—through the analyses of ritual celebrations such as Latin American Mission’s pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of the Divino Amore (outside Rome), as well as the devotional presence of the Sacred Heart (a fifteenth-century devotion to the suffering of Jesus)—captures (re)emerging struggles for the colonization of “new” territories within the Catholic Church. It argues that Latin American migrant itineraries and Roman urban landscapes reveal the circulation of deep-seated anxieties, first about the pollution of a migrant Other, but also about the possibility for renewed forms of Catholic centralization and counter-narratives of gender, belonging, and the homey.
