Feast of St. Ignatius-July 31st

July 30, 2010

Happy St. Ignatius Day (one day early)!  If you have not picked up on it already, St. Ignatius is one of my all time favorite saints.  He is the founder of the Jesuits, and he is the patron saint of the retreats.  One of his greatest gifts to us are the Spiritual Exercises.  I am deeply grateful for the gift of Ignatian Spirituality because it continues to provide tools for me to connect my faith to my everyday life. 

Loyola Press has a great link for 31 days of St. Ignatius!  Day 31 is a link for a free e-copy of Margaret Silf’s book Compass Points.  I highly recommend it!

Today, let us pause and remember a great man who continues to impact lives 500 years later!

What saints or other men and women do I admire?
