Pilgrims with Ignatius – Live Prayer Broadcast
You are invited to start the Ignatian Year prayerfully online with us on Sunday, May 23rd at 8PM (EDT) when Fr. Arturo Sosa SJ, Superior General of the Jesuits, will lead us in prayer, and people from all over the world share testimonies of life-changing spiritual moments. There will be time for silent, personal prayer too.
May 2021 begins the Jesuits’ worldwide celebration of the Ignatian Year. 500 years ago, Ignatius Loyola was wounded by a cannonball while defending Pamplona. For him, it was a major life failure and a change of his plans from a future full of riches and worldly exploits to founding something that came to be known as the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits). This “cannonball moment” led Ignatius to have bigger dreams centered no longer on himself but on God. The Ignatian Year offers us all a great opportunity, like St. Ignatius, to realize that change is possible, that our hearts can be softened, and that our world can find new ways forward. This year is an opportunity to be renewed!
