As is already tradition, Pope Francis has visited his Jesuit brothers near the Feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola, which falls on July 31 each year.
Yesterday, July 7, 2019, the Jesuit Pope visited Rome’s Jesuit Curia, Director of the Holy See Press Office, Alessandro Gisotti, confirmed to ZENIT’s Deborah Lubov.
In a subsequent statement, the Vatican spokesman wrote the following:
“I can confirm that yesterday the Holy Father went for a private visit to the General Curia of the Jesuits where he dined with the Superior General, Father Arturo Sosa, and with his brothers of the Society of Jesus.”
“As is known, the Pontiff has already privately visited the General Curia and his brother Jesuits in past years near the Feast of St Ignatius of Loyola,” the statement concluded.
