Movie Night & Discussion: St Ignatius of Loyola – Soldier. Sinner. Saint.



Calgary, Canada

Led by Sr. Madeleine Gregg, fcJ & Fr. Charles Pottie-Pâté,SJ

How does the « graced history » of Ignatius of Loyola impact my own « graced history »?

An evening at the FCJ Centre in Calgary, including movie and discussion, exploring the life of St Ignatius of Loyola.
This modern and very human take on the story of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, often called « The Saint of Second Chances » is an incisive and thrilling look at the life of the real man behind the legend. In his lifelong quest to become the heroic knight of his fantasies, Ignatius stares death in the face again and again, having his leg shattered by a cannonball in battle; driven to near suicide by his inner demons; finding himself imprisoned, accused of being an illuminati; and finally finding his life in the hands of the Inquisition. Through it all, he would come to see the hand of God working in his life, shaping the self-obsessed sinner into the loyal and passionate soldier-saint.
