Catholic Church Ignatian Spirituality Prayer

St. Ignatius


Today, July 31st, is the Feast Day of St. Ignatius, who went home to God on this day in 1556.

There’ are other sections of this blog that go into great detail about this man, the religious order he founded, and his legacy of the Spiritual Exercises.

I came to know St. Ignatius several years ago through the kindness of a Jesuit priest who gave me some books on the life of this Saint.

Happy Independence Day


Years before 9/11, I had the chance to visit the Statue of Liberty, climbing all the way to the top and taking in the view from the windows of her crown.  It was amazing, and I’m grateful to have had that opportunity, since, due to  fears of terrorism, such climbs are no longer allowed.  Today, the Statue is open again, having been closed for months because of another attack, this one coming from mother nature: Hurricane Sandy.

31 Days With St. Ignatius


Each July, Loyola Press offers a daily post on some aspect of Ignatian Spirituality, which as you may know, is near and dear to my heart.  Last year, I was a bit delayed in getting the word out, but not this year…

I hope you’ll check out their site, not only today, but every day leading to Ignatius’ Feast day, which is July 31st.  I think you’ll be glad you did!

🙂 Happy July 🙂
