IGNATIUS OF LOYOLA: Soldier – Sinner – Saint

[English movie with English subtitles]

Thursday, 26 July; 7:30pm – 9:30pm, in Main Church.

“IGNATIUS” is an incisive and thrilling look at the life of St. Ignatius of Loyola, or Ignacio, founder of the Society of Jesus, as told by a young priest who was once assigned to defend him before the Spanish Inquisition.

In his lifelong quest to become the heroic Knight of his fantasies, Ignacio stares death in the face again and again, finding himself imprisoned for murder; having his leg shattered by an cannonball in battle; driven to near suicide by his inner demons; and finally his life in the hands of the Inquisition.  Through it all, he would come to see the hand of God working in his life, shaping the self-obsessed sinner into the loyal and passionate soldier-saint.

The film also shows how Ignacio wove the trials, errors, and lessons of his eventful life into the fabric of his masterpiece, the Spiritual Exercises.

All are welcome!
