America Media is in Rome on pilgrimage Oct. 22-28. With Father Matt Malone as our guide, we’re exploring the center of the Catholic Church and the sites where the Society of Jesus has been living and working since the time of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Join us at our America Journeys website for a virtual pilgrimage as we offer reflections each day.
