Discover the life and spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola with these video series.

All great stories have a beginning, but these beginnings aren’t always as we imagine or wish them to be. In his youth, Ignatius of Loyola dreamt of being the protagonist in a great story of triumph and fame… and he put great physical and intellectual effort into preparing himself for this story. Yet paradoxically, the beginning of the story which we remember him for 500 years later, begins with the collapse of everything he had put his hope and strength into. A cannonball knocks him down and leaves him wounded and vulnerable – thus able to get closer to God.
