Saints

St. Ignatius Loyola

Ignatius was a Spanish soldier, eager for fame, pleasure, and worldly glory. In a battle with the French, his knee was severely injured. During his long recovery he read several books, mostly about heroic knights and their adventures. Then he started reading books about the saints. He realized that being holy was a far more exciting adventure than being a soldier. After his recovery, he gave his whole life to Jesus. He founded the Society of Jesus. Many of his priests became great missionaries who always wanted to give glory to Jesus like St. Ignatius taught them.
