Every year around this time Loyola Press amazes me with the fun and excitement they drum up around the Feast of St Ignatius. With St Ignatius’ Day on Thursday of this week, they are at it again with videos, posts, and most importantly PRIZES!
Here’s what they have to say about this year’s Inner Iggy extravaganza:
The cannonball moment. Laying down his sword and knife. Finding God along a river in Spain.
These are all milestones in St. Ignatius’s life—moments that shaped the man who founded the Jesuits. Today, Iggy revisits these same moments as he invites us to explore, nurture, and share our own spirituality some 500 years later in Loyola Press’s weeklong contest, Find Your Inner Iggy.
Find out how contributors like Kerry Weber, Paddy Gilger, SJ, and Pope Francis have had similar (not literal!) moments. Share your moment on Facebook, Instagram, Vine, or Twitter using the hashtag #FindIggy, and be rewarded with enlightenment, peace, and swag!
The fun begins at www.findyourinneriggy.com!
As the proud owner of a St Ignatius bobblehead, I can attest that you shouldn’t miss an opportunity to win one.
On a personal note, I hope to share some thoughts on Ignatian Spirituality in my life on Thursday. As it so happens, that is the same day that I leave for Zambia for an Ignatian Collaboration with a Jesuit school in Lusaka. Until then I hope to keep up with your posts and tweets using the hashtag #FindIggy – or you can share in the comments!
