From Rome's Gesù: How to Teach the Faith with Baroque Music and Art

Recorded baroque music with light and audio narration on the life of St. Ignatius of Loyola at this altar (altare di Sant'Ignazio) each day at 5:30 p.m.
The painting is lowered to reveal the statue as seen in the photo during the mini catechetical "concert".
This daily event, believe it or not, is a must see.


  1. and don't forget the free guided tours of the Church led by the Jesuit seminarians on Thursdays and Fridays starting at 16:00 hours!

  2. I do not remember seeing that painting in front of St. Ignatius Statue before. Is there a reason why it is there?

  3. Oooo, this is so cool! The lowering of the painting reminds me of what is done at the Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama (where Mother Angelica's PCPA monastery is). There is painting that covers the huge monstrance at the top of the high altar in the church during Mass and Benediction. When Mass and Benediction are over, the nuns sing 'Adoremus in Aeternum Sanctissimum Sacramentum', and the painting is lowered to show the monstrance holding the Blessed Sacrament.
