Greeting from the IBVM English Region for the Feast of St Ignatius
From May 2021 until July 2022, the Society of Jesus celebrates an Ignatian Year to mark the 500th anniversary of St. Ignatius’ conversion — we remember the cannonball experience as the beginning of a discerning way of being.
‘Ignatius spent time in convalescence letting his imagination wander. He imagined going back to a life of daring chivalry. He also imagined himself following in the footsteps of the saints. The former dream left him dissatisfied and desolate; the latter filled him with peace.’
