The Ignatian Year

In May 1521 Ignatius was recuperating in his family’s castle at Loyola after his legs were damaged by a cannonball at the siege of Pamplona. Bored, he began to read a life of Christ and the lives of the saints. And so his conversion to a life of imitating Christ began. That was 500 years ago this year. Jesuits all around the world celebrate this conversion over the coming year, beginning on 22 May 2021 and finishing on 31 July 2022, the anniversary of his canonisation.
