Saint Ignatius of Loyola

July 31

Saint Ignatius of LoyolaGood Savior, Saint Ignatius was wounded in battle and had to spend months in recovery.  He wanted to pass the time reading adventure books about knights, but all he could find were biographies on the saints.  Reading these, he felt challenged to do what the saints had done.  I ask him to pray for people to make good choices in reading material.  Take away from me and my loved ones, O Lord, any interest in books and magazines that do not contribute to our relationship with You, and do the same with all forms of entertainment.  Increase in us a desire to learn from the biographies of saints.  Saint Ignatius, pray for us.  Amen.
