"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

St. Ignatius of Loyola

Conversion of St. Ignatius, Miguel Cabrera

Today is the feast of St. Ignatius.

Prayers for all Jesuits today, and the Pope.  Happy feast day and thank you for your devotion, fidelity and ministry.

“If our church is not marked by caring for the poor, 
the oppressed, the hungry, we are guilty of heresy.” 
- Ignatius of Loyola

  3. Happy feast day, dear T. I love St Ignatius, took his name for Confirmation. Have read a lot about Ignatius but never saw the quote: I know this sounds weird but it does not sound like him.
