Loyola Press, a Jesuit publishing company, is celebrating the Feast Day of St. Ignatius, with a series called “Find Your Inner Iggy” — and they’re inviting you to get involved.
St. Ignatius founded the Jesuits, the Catholic order whose values — intellect, faith, compassion and service to others — form the foundation of the world’s Jesuit colleges and universities, including the College of the Holy Cross. Learn more about St. Ignatius.
Contributors including Rev. James Martin, S.J., Sr. Simone Campbell, and Rev. Greg Boyle, S.J., have been sharing where they’ve found God in an unlikely place — in a decision, in prayer, in service to others, in their imagination, and in all things. All of their reflections have been appearing on Ignatian Spirituality’s Facebook tab, www.findyourinneriggy.com, leading up to St. Ignatius’s feast day on July 31.
The Holy Cross community is encouraged to share where they’ve found God in one of these themes. Post a photo, video or message on Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels with the hashtag #FindIggy, and Loyola Press could reward you with an Iggy bobblehead, tattoo or book.
