Martyrium / Napoleon's Tomb, etc.

These pictures were taken yesterday, June 22, at Les Deux Magots. The students had an assigned discussion. We have a really great group this year and are enjoying every student!

Today (June 23), the group went to the Martyrium and had a talk by a French Jesuit priest. The Martyrium is important because it is where the patron saint of France, St. Denis, was martyred (beheaded). Also, it is the place where St. Ignatius Loyola and his friends from the Sorbonne made their first vows. We also went to Napoleon's tomb and the students were sent to the Rodin Museum and the Pantheon. We had a wonderful Italian dinner at a neighborhood restaurant.
