An historic meeting in Rome
Pope Francis, the first Jesuit Pope, addressed the members of the General Jesuit Congregation 36, called GC36 in Rome. It was the first time a Jesuit Pope had addressed a General Congregation. It was indeed special. He spent an hour addressing the members and two hours answering questions.
