Last month, Saint Peter’s University President Eugene J. Cornacchia, along with several guests, including Vice President for Mission and Ministry Fr. Michael Braden, SJ, traveled to Spain to visit sites associated with the life and ministry of St. Ignatius Loyola.
Some of the sites visited included:
- The castle in Loyola where Ignatius was born.
- Monserrat, where Ignatius committed himself to leaving behind his life as a soldier.
- Manresa, the site of the cave where Ignatius spent 10 months writing most of his Spiritual Exercises.
Fr. Braden said two Masses during the journey. One was at the Conversion Chapel, which is located in the castle where Ignatius was born and the second was at the chapel within the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar, which was visited by Ignatius.
