The 226 members of the 35th General Congregation process into the Gesu (Jesus, in Italian) for the opening liturgy of the Congregation.

The principal celebrant was Cardinal Franc Rodé, former Archbishop of the church of Slovenia and currently Pro-Prefect of Congregation for Institutes of the Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life. He was flanked by Father General Kolvenbach (left) and Father Frank Case (Oregon Province) (right), Secretary of the Society.

The entire Congregation before the main altar at the Gesu Church in Rome.

At the end of Mass, Fr. Kolvenbach processed
to the side altar where St. Ignatius of Loyola is buried. The very large painting in the niche above the altar was gradually lowered in silence and revealing behind it the magnificent baroque silver statue of St. Ignatius.
