Prayer: Joseph deGuibert, S.J.

St. Ignatius’ conversion was essentially his discovery of the greatest and most attractive of all leaders, our Lord Jesus Christ. Ignatius expressed with great ardor this desire “to be placed with Jesus.”… Both the desire and the thirst also formed, I think, a twofold component which was the most profound, general, constant, and predominant characteristic in the spirituality of his followers. That trait can be expressed thus: to be with Christ – in order to serve Him…. From this point of view, it is beyond all doubt that for the Jesuits, as for Ignatius, the center of their spiritual life is truly in that devotion to Christ.
