St. Ignatius' Heavily-Used Cookbook -or- Ignatian Reflections Part 1
Today is the Feast Day of St. Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556), one of my favorite saints and the focus of much reflection in American Catholic education. This attention surfaced as a result of Vatican II's call for religious orders to recover a sense of their roots. In the United States, no religious order has a bigger footprint--albeit not the oldest--in Catholic higher education than the Society of Jesus. Thus this year starts off what hopefully will be an annual tradition of Ignatian reflections on the spiritual sub-universe within Roman Catholicism that is "the Jesuit tradition." With that in mind, here's my first take, my latest at the St. Joseph's Theology blog. Please enjoy and share!
