July 31 is the Feast of St. Ignatius! This date has personal significance for me since I attended St. Ignatius College Prep and Loyola University of Chicago (undergrad and graduate degrees) and work for Loyola Press! That’s a lot of Ignatian influence!
Of course, we are all blessed to have been influenced in some way, shape, or form by this great man. With that in mind, I’d like to share a couple of ways to celebrate the Feast of St. Ignatius.
The first is called 31 Days of St. Ignatius. A PDF featuring information about Ignatian spirituality is posted on IgnatianSpirituality.com. A different piece of content from IgnatianSpirituality.com is featured each day leading up to the feast day on July 31.
The second effort is called FIND IGGY. It is a ‘treasure hunt” through LoyolaPress.com. On each Wednesday in July we’ll publish a question about Ignatius. Two hints will be given. You can then search through LoyolaPress.com to find the answer, and in doing so, FIND IGGY. As a reward, you will receive a special offer to be used in the following 24 hours.
