A Prayer for the Feast Day of Ignatius of Loyola

O God, by whose grace thy servant Ignatius, enkindled with the fire of thy love, became a burning and a shining light in thy Church: Grant that we also may be aflame with the spirit of love and discipline, and may ever walk before thee as children of light; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, liveth and reigneth, one God, now and for ever.

  1. David Wilson says:

    Ignatius of Loyola, a man best known for hunting down and persecuting Protestants is not not someone whose life emulates that of a saint. Anglican Theologian the late Peter Toon has said, ‚ÄúSaints are persons who are living by grace, holy lives of faithful obedience.” NOT!
