Ignatius of Loyola
Ignatius of Loyola was the founder of the Society of Jesus, (Jesuits). He lived between 1491-1556. Ignatius brought a new and dynamic conception of the religious life and gradually came to realize the vanity of worldly passions and his dependence on things of the spirit. He
persuaded a few of his fellows to spend their Sundays and holy days with him in prayer,
and also to engage in good works on behalf of others. Several of these men were to form
the inner core of the Society of Jesus. Ignatius of Loyola was a pragmatic idealist who devoted his mature years to revitalizing Catholicism and meeting the challenges of the Protestant Revolt.
