Jesuit's Saint Mary Assunta Chapel Open To The Public

In a major initiative, the Society of Jesus has opened the doors of its oldest homes in Rome, where saint Ignatius used to live and died is open to public. The Society of Jesus is celebrating its 470th anniversary. The move is considered as significant because 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 includes guided tours by groups of young Jesuits.

It is a little invideous to claim that these rooms are closed to the public. The reality is that anybody who applies to see them is allowed to do so.
