Today is the feast day of St. Ignatius of Loyola. When we talk about Ignatius, we tend to focus on either spirituality, missionary work, or higher education. What is often lost in all of this is the fact that Ignatius was a catechist! He and his followers regularly gathered children in the churches and squares of Rome to offer instruction on the basics of Christianity.
So on this feast of St. Ignatius, we renew our commitment to catechesis, following in the footsteps of Ignatius of Loyola. May our efforts be for the greater glory of God!
