Jesuit Church, Brussels


The Gesù church, constructed in 1860 by Jesuit Priests, is located across the street from the Botanique, one of Brussels' great cultural temples.  In recent years the church itself was used for cultural events, exhibitions and concerts. A few weeks ago, it made the news; a group of homeless people were driven away by police.  I just noticed driving by there yesterday a man's pleading for a more suitable and permanent solution for the city's homeless.
