Prayer: Ignatius of Loyola, S.J.

Men crucified to the world, and to whom the world itself is crucified, such would the rule of our live have us to be. New men, I say, who have put off their affections to put on Christ; dead to themselves to live to justice; who with St. Paul in labors, in sleepless nights, in fastings, in innocence, in knowledge, in long sufferings, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in unaffected love, in the word of truth, show themselves ministers of God; and by the armor of justice on the right hand and on the left, by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report, by good success finally, and by ill success, press forward with great strides to their heavenly country, and by all means possible and with all zeal urge on others also, ever looking to God’s greater glory. This is the sum and aim of our institute.
