A SNIPPET FROM THIS WEEK'S NEWSLETTER -
St Ignatius Loyola 1491—1556
Ignatius was a convert who, once convinced of
God’s general will for him, continued to search for
it in every detail of his life. He was the younger
son of a Basque noble family which stood up to the
powerful, thirsted for adventure and engaged in its
fair share of sin. He gave himself up to worldly
pride and pleasures until he was 23, when he
discovered life in the Spirit during his convalescence at Loyola.
He reflected and questioned himself on the ‘spirits’ he felt were at work
within him, some disturbing and some consoling, and he learned to
distinguish what was authentic from what was false.
Ignatius had been ‘seized’ by Christ, whom he wished to serve.
He was always reaching for something greater to realise the glory and
service of Our Lord, to find him in all things.
The service he promised to Christ was given concrete expression in the
willingness of a group of men to be totally at the disposal of the Vicar
So was born the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits.

IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY INFORMATION
Introducing the FIRST SPIRITUAL EXERCISES originally conceived by St Ignatius Loyola and adapted by Michael Hansen sj, will be offered to St Ignatius Parish — the congregations of both St Ignatius Toowong and Holy Spirit Auchenflower by the Jesuits of the Parish and Faber CIS to commemorate 100yrs of Jesuit presence in Toowong. Sundays August 7, 14, 21 & 28 and Sept. 4. Retreat commitment is 4wks, with 25—40 mins of prayer 4 days a week, preferably Monday—Thursday. This is followed by the Sunday Eucharist and its weekend exercise. It adds up to about 22 days. While this is a serious commitment, with real sacrifices, it is only made once a year, and the graces received can be quite extraordinary. Please consider making this commitment during Parish’s Centenary year & the ‘Year of Mercy’. - Fr John Reilly sj. Click here for more detailed information
