An episode from the life of the founder of the Jesuits
can inspire our meditation today.
In 1535, at the end of his studies in Paris, Ignatius
travels to his native town, Azpeitia. He does not accept his brother’s
invitation to stay in the family castle of Loyola and settles in the hospital
of La Magdalena in Azpeitia. Look at his serving the sick, serving the poor,
begging for alms and speaking of God to his fellow countrymen and women.
