St. Ignatius of Loyola, Founder of the Jesuits

Today is the Memorial of St. Ignatius of Loyola. He converted from being a soldier in the world to being a soldier for Christ. He founded the Jesuit order, the Society of Jesus, which became a great missionary force in the 16th century throughout the world, particularly in what was to become the United States.

Jesuit Saints Isaac Jogues, Rene Goupil and John de la Lande all were martyred by Mohawk Indians in their village at present day Auriesville, NY. From their blood blossomed the Lily of the Mohawks, St. Kateri Tekakwitha, who was born in that same village ten years after the death of St. Isaac Jogues.



St. Ignatius challenged his followers to “Magis”, from the Latin meaning doing something more for God and for others.

Our Summer Campaign needs something more - a lot more! Can you be like St. Ignatius and do something more for God and for us? Please help us to continue coordinating Visitations throughout our country of our Missionary Images of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of America and Jesus King of All Nations.

We have only raised $15,150.00, just over 10% of our $130,000 need for this summer. We still need $114,850.00. We really need a lot more! Please do something more for our Apostolates!
 
We need to raise these funds by September 29th, the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel, if we are going to be able to continue making Visitations of our Missionary Images.

Our work and God’s grace bring conversions, healings, hope and peace. Perhaps you have experienced some of these.

Our Lady of Guadalupe told St. Juan Diego, “Do the best that you can.” We simply ask that you do the best that you can to support our Apostolates. 
 
Any gift, whether $20, $50, $100, or $250 or more is greatly appreciated!
