The Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Fr. Arturo Sosa
S.J., has called for an “Ignatian Year” to celebrate the life of
St Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits.
The Year will open on May 20th, the 500th anniversary of when
Ignatius the soldier was injured by a cannonball in the Battle of
Pamplona. The Year will conclude on July 31, 2022, the feast day
of St. Ignatius. The peak of the celebration will fall on
March 12, 2022, the 400th anniversary of the canonization of St.
Ignatius and St. Francis Xavier.
“…the great big desires that God has placed in our hearts. What
are these “great desires?” Ultimately, they are variations of
actions that will lead to faith, hope and love for God and our
fellow neighbor. If we do the work of discernment in our prayer,
we will discover these great desires and follow them rather than
the petty, superficial ones.”
