Day 7


Welcome to Day 7 of the CMSWR in Rome!
We began the day visiting the beautiful church of Sant' Andrea della Valle.  The exquisite paintings throughout the church depicted scenes from the life and martyrdom of St. Andrew the Apostle as well as our Lady and other Saints.  We enjoyed the time we had for prayer.

Sister Mary Agnes was delighted that we returned to visit Sant' Agnese in Agone Church and prayed at the reliquary of the Saint!

Next came the unique and wonderful opportunity to see the office and the bedroom of St. Ignatius of Loyola.  Father Sam Conedero, a newly ordained Jesuit priest, celebrated Mass for us in the room where St. Ignatius died and which is now a chapel.

The bronze head on the pillar, replicated from his death mask, shows how tall St. Ignatius was in real life.
