This Ignatius video tells the life story of Igantius of Loyola: from Spanish soldier to soldier for Christ, from courtier to humble priest, from self-serving thrill-seeker to educator serving others. The saint’s story—presented here in a one-man dramatization by I. Michael Bellafiore—is a fascinating pilgrimage to God that illustrates what can happen if we allow God’s grace to be at work in our lives.
Ignatius Loyola: The Story of the Pilgrim is enacted in three 30-minute segments. Includes a free Study and Discussion Guide that draws out appropriate themes for junior high, high school, and adult learners.
