“In Pamplona, 500 years ago, all the worldly dreams of Ignatius were shattered in one instance. That one cannonball changed the course of his life, and of the world.” -Pope Francis
On May 23, 2021, members of the worldwide Ignatian family — Jesuits and lay collaborators alike — joined together in a virtual prayer to begin the Ignatian Year, a global celebration marking the 500th anniversary of St. Ignatius’ conversion. There was one Jesuit who was sure not to miss the event- our Pope, Francis.
Throughout the Ignatian Year, we will be posting reflections and resources so that we may learn more about St. Ignatius and the disciplines we can learn through Ignatian Spirituality.
