Saint Ignatius and the Company of Jesus
Seriously wounded in battle, the soldier Ignatius had a profound conversion to Christ during his period of healing and recovery. He abandoned a promising career in the military and dedicated the rest of his life to the service of Christ and the Church.
This excerpt explores the founding of one of the most influential orders in the Church, gives a graphic account of Ignatius's adventures and encounters with popes, kings, and emperors, and illuminates the great work the Jesuits did in spreading the Gospel.
