Advent Calendar: Roman Door 3

Door to the Collegio Romano. This school was built by the Jesuits in the late 16th Century. This was the first of hundreds of Jesuit schools and universities around the world, including Loyola Marymount, my alma mater, Fordham University in New York City, and Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. When the Italian state annexed Rome in 1870, it took over the school. It is now a city high school.

And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together;for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
From Handel's Messiah: Part I
