Happy Birthday, St. Ignatius! – Ignatian Spirituality

Although no one is sure on what day St. Ignatius was born, some sources put it as October 23, 1491.

During Ignatius’ birthday week we have a surprise party with that certain something – instead of surprising the honored, we should perceive God’s surprises all around us and find God in those moments, as Ignatius taught us.
