St. Ignatius And His Sword

There on the Eve of the Annunciation, Ignatius went into the church in all his armor and kept vigil till morning. Then he laid his sword on our Lady's altar and vowed at the same time to give up the world once for all, and become a missionary. After a while, some other holy men joined him and when they had been made priests, St. Ignatius made the rules of the great Jesuit order that is so famous, and has won so many souls to God.
