During this Ignatian Month, we asked some our students to reflect on the life of our beloved saint, Ignatius of Loyola. We asked Ms. Kirsten Erica Tequilo, an incoming Grade 9 student: “Why is St Ignatius relevant today?” This is her reply.
“St. Ignatius taught us that change is not always something that people should fear, but can even lead to something great. He started as a rich soldier with dreams of honor and fame, but after an almost fatal injury, his life took a sharp turn, and he devoted it to God. This inspires people to accept change even when it seems difficult. St. Ignatius is relevant more than ever, not only through people relating to his experience but through the actions of the Society of Jesus in this time of chaos. AMDG”
