Jesuits Open their Home in Rome


The Society of Jesus is celebrating  its 470th anniversary by opening the doors of its oldest homes in Rome. Some of the places, like the Saint Mary Assunta Chapel, has never been open to the public.

The initiative is called “Unexpected Connections: Journey to the Heart of the Society,” and it includes guided tours by Jesuits.

“It is a rare opportunity for everyone who comes to visit us, but it is also an opportunity for us, Jesuits, to open our doors to people. We are not used to having people in our house, ” said Italian Jesuit Father Flavio Bottaro.
