You are invited to go deeper into the lives of the saints this month! We have five emails that share a reflection on, and a prayer to, some of the amazing saints we honor this month.
Born in Northern Spain, Ignatius' leg was shattered by a cannonball in 1520.  During his recovery, he read stories of the saints and the life of Christ and devoted himself to a life of holiness.  
His followers became known as the "Society of Jesus," or "The Jesuits."   Ignatius died in 1556 and was declared a saint in 1622.  He is the patron of soldiers and educators.

St. Ignatius of Loyola, pray for us!
 Prayer of St. Ignatius of Loyola

Dearest Lord,
teach me to be generous;
teach me to serve You as You deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward
save that of knowing I am doing Your Will.
