1. Cenotaph of the Count Gaspare Thiene (XVII century) The monument of Count Gaspare Thiene, homonymous of the father of St. Cajetan. who probably past away in Rome in 1676, was commissioned by the apostolic protonotary Ercole Visconi and the cleric Ferdinando Raggi of the Apostolic Chamber, who was the testamentary performer of the Count.

M. / GASPARI COMITI THIENAEO / CLARAE NOBILITATIS, SINGULARIS PROBITATIS VIRO / MORUM SUAVITATE CUNCTIS SED PRINCIPIBUS APPRIME CARUS / AD ARAM DIVI CAIETANI / INTER HOMINES CONSANGUINEI / INTER CAELITES PATRONI / EX TESTAMENTO POSUERUNT / ERCULES VICECOMES PROTONOTARIUS APOSTOLICUS ET FERDINANDUS RAGGIUS CAMERAE APOSTOLICAE CLERICUS EXECUTOR TESTAMENTARIUS / ANNO DOMINI MDCLXXVI.
2. Author of the Cenotaph. The Cenotaph is the work of Domenico Guido (1628-1701), the artist of Carrara disciple of Algardi, who succeeded in chiselling in bright, lively and elegant marble from Piglio, the bust of the Count, placed above the urn into a lunette. Two female statues of virtue, the Prudence and the Righteousness, flank the door. Mannered and graceful, the first one look herself in the mirror, with the other hand, holds a serpent coiled arround her arm; The second one holds roses and fruits, athe prize to the virtue of the strong ones.

2 1 My brothers, don’t hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ of glory with partiality. 2 For if a man with a gold ring, in fine clothing, comes into your synagogue or, meeting, and a poor man in filthy clothing also comes in; 3 and you pay special attention to him who wears the fine clothing, and say, “Sit here in a good place;” and you tell the poor man, “Stand there,” or “Sit by my footstool;” 4 haven’t you shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? 5 Listen, my beloved brothers. Didn’t God choose those who are poor in this world to be rich in faith, and heirs of the Kingdom which he promised to those who love him? 6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Don’t the rich oppress you, and personally drag you before the courts? 7 Don’t they blaspheme the honorable name by which you are called? 8 However, if you fulfill the royal law, according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well. 9 But if you show partiality, you commit sin, being convicted by the law as transgressors. 10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he has become guilty of all. 11 For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,” said also, “Do not commit murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 12 So speak, and so do, as men who are to be judged by a law of freedom. 13 For judgment is without mercy to him who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. 14 What good is it, my brothers, if a man says he has faith, but has no works? Can faith save him? 15 And if a brother or sister is naked and in lack of daily food, 16 and one of you tells them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled;” and yet you didn’t give them the things the body needs, what good is it? 17 Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead in itself. 18 Yes, a man will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith from your works, and I by my works will show you my faith. 19 You believe that God is one. You do well. The demons also believe, and shudder. 20 But do you want to know, vain man, that faith apart from works is dead? 21 Wasn’t Abraham our father justified by works, in that he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? 22 You see that faith worked with his works, and by works faith was perfected; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness;” and he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that by works, a man is justified, and not only by faith. 25 In like manner wasn’t Rahab the prostitute also justified by works, in that she received the messengers, and sent them out another way? 26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead.

4. St. Joseph Mª Tomasi’s Canvas (1986). In the vestibule of the side door of the basilica, which opens to the east, there is hanging on the door that enters the chapel of st. Cajetan, a mediocre canvas depicting St. Joseph Maria Tomasi in his glory. Painted by Messori in 1986 for the canonization of the theatine saint, his only merit would be to greet the crowd of pilgrims who came to Rome on October 12, 1986 for the before mentioned canonization, from the central loggia of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.
