The Gesu and St. Ignatius

Ryan O'Neill in St. Ignatius Loyola's roomComing from a Jesuit background I was delighted when we went to visit the Gesu Church, which is the Jesuit headquarters in Rome. Also, there is the original living space of St. Ignatius of Loyola while he lived in Rome. This is a photo of his office where he would write letters, study, and pray. We were also able to see the small chapel connected to this room where he celebrated Mass every day. I attended Regis University in Denver, which is a Jesuit University, and I have been blessed with the opportunity to do the 30 day Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

    Are they going to do this every year for seminarians? And how does one apply for it?
