Saint Ignatius Loyola
St. Ignatius Loyola
By F. A. Forbes
A short, popular biography, by the author of many easy-to-read Imprimatured saints’ biographies, telling the fascinating story of the ardent Spanish soldier who, while recuperating from a battle wound, was converted from his worldly pursuits to the service of Christ by reading a Catholic book.
He initially did great penance, became holy, went to study at the University of Paris, wrote his famous “Spiritual Exercises,” gathered a following of brilliant holy men, and then founded the Society of Jesus: The Jesuits.
