    Vatican City — I can’t tell you how tremendous it was to stand in St. Peter’s Square and hear Pope Francis speak Spanish to the crowd, as Romans continued through the streets to hear their new Holy Father! And it is hard to describe to you the emotions in the square as the white smoke rose. Screaming. Crying. Cheering. Praying. Love. People talked about how blessed they were as they waited. Ready to welcome their “papa” — before even knowing who he was. Earlier this year I attended a conference on the Church in America, and one thing that became...

    The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola translated by Elder Mullan [1914] These are the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, a plan of contemplation to be carried out over about a month. St. Ignatius of Loyola (1419-1556) was the founder of the Jesuits, and was canonized by Pope Gregory XV in 1622. He published the Spiritual Exercises in 1548. The Exercises were intended for use during a retreat; and are a central part of the first year training of Jesuit novitiates. However, one does not have to be a Jesuit-in-training to take advantage of the Exercises:...

    Ignatius Insight ^ | October 16, 2009 | Kenneth D. Whitehead
    Sometime around the year 107 A.D., a short, sharp persecution of the Church of Christ resulted in the arrest of the bishop of Antioch in Syria. His name was Ignatius. According to one of the harsh penal practices of the Roman Empire of the day, the good bishop was condemned to be delivered up to wild beasts in the arena in the capital city. The insatiable public appetite for bloody spectacles meant a chronically short supply of victims; prisoners were thus sent off to Rome to help fill the need. So the second bishop of Antioch was sent to Rome...

    The Epistle of Ignatius to the Virgin Mary Her friend Ignatius, to the Christ-bearing Mary.
