Our friend, Father Jim Martin, SJ, associate editor at America, the Jesuit newsmagazine, always has something fascinating on his blog, “In All Things.” This time, however he has really outdone himself with a video from his brother Jesuit, Father Mike Rogers.
Check out this beautiful tour of the rooms in Rome in which St. Ignatius Loyola actually lived and died. And get out your handkerchiefs. Father Jim is right. The video, with musical background from the soundtracks of The Mission and Kenneth Branagh’s Henry V, will leave in you in tears. It may also leave you with a burning desire to know more about this extraordinary saint, the founder of the Society of Jesus.
