31 Jul

Born in the year 1491 at Loyola in northern Spain. His early life was led at court and in the army, and later he was converted to a life of holiness. He studied theology at Paris and gathered companions around him, and afterwards at Rome he formed the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits). He exercised a very fruitful apostolate by his written work and by the formation of his disciples who were outstanding in the reform of the Church. He died at Rome in the year 1556.

Prayer: Lord God, You raised up Saint Ignatius Loyola in Your Church to give greater glory to Your name. Grant that, aided by his prayers, we may fight against all that is evil on earth, and with him receive the crown of victory in heaven. We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
