Ignatius of Loyola: reaching the purpose

Friday, July 31, 2015
    Commemoration of Ignatius of Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus, 1556
Serve the LORD with gladness:
    come before his presence with singing.
    —Psalm 100:2 (KJV)
    Man was created to praise, reverence, and serve God our Lord and in this way to save his soul. The other things on Earth were created for man’s use, to help him reach the end for which he was created.
    ... St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491/5-1556), The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, New York: P. J. Kennedy & Sons, 1914, p. 19 (see the book)
    See also Deut. 10:12-13; Josh. 24:15; 1 Sam. 12:20; Ps. 2:11; 100:2; 111:1; 117; 146:1; Col. 3:23-24
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your people praise You for Your mercy and goodness.
