31 July – Saint Ignatius of Loyola

roses in the rubble (Kosovo, 1999)

“He who carries God in his heart bears heaven with him wherever he goes.”     

“To give, and not to count the cost
to fight, and not to heed the wounds,
to toil, and not to seek for rest,
to labor, and not to ask for any reward,
save that of knowing that we do Thy will”

“Laugh and grow strong…”

“Speak little, listen much…”

“Go forth and set the world on fire…”

Saint Ignatius of Loyola (1491 – 31 July 1556)
