Jesuits About us Ignatius of Loyola

Ignatius of Loyola

At the age of 30, Ignatius was a knight of the Royal Court of Spain. Success, fame and honors were the values of his life. Then, during the siege of Pamplona, a cannonball seriously injured his leg. He underwent two surgeries followed by a long convalescence that forced him to put his life in order and, with a new outlook, walk along new paths.

The Society of Jesus

A fire that kindles other fires

From the first seven Jesuits gathered around Ignatius, in 500 years, the Society has extended to five continents to help everyone find God in their lives and be reconciled with Him.
