I found in these Forums several dozen references, mostly quotations, for the founder of the Jesuits, but not a life summary.  I wonder if I'm searching as ineffectively as I am in using the quote feature?  Ignatius' Spiritual Exercises seem a must for everyone, as is reading his struggle to recover his dreadful wounds.  He persisted through poverty, academic struggles, even being twice jailed (Foley mentions but doesn't explain) yet the Society of Jesus was approved by Pope Paul III in 1538.  St Ignatius, please pray for us.

His father had Ignatius tonsured in anticipation of the possibility of his following a clerical career. Ignatius was seven years old.
