St Ignatius of Loyola: A Convert’s Story


Patrick Corkery SJ

‘….written in a very accessible style…..gently introduces the reader to the life, struggles and character of this Spanish gentleman who has left a formidable legacy to the Church and the world…’ The Furrow

‘…handy and readable…there are lessons here in how to manage unexpected and difficult change within our own lives.’  The Irish News

‘This is a good place for readers to begin their own search of the meaning of St Ignatius in the world today.’  The Irish Catholic

Change is an essential part of life. How we meet that change is where it can get interesting. St Ignatius had a dramatic conversion that shattered not only his leg but all his previous dreams and aspirations. In this booklet, we can witness the transformation which took place in the life of Ignatius from a vainglorious young man obsessed with his own success, to one who put the service of God and other people before anything else.
