The Three Things He Most Desired,

Shortly before his death St. Ignatius thanked God that the three things he most desired, were accomplished.
These three things were, that the Society of Jesus should be confirmed by the Pope, that the book of the Spiritual Exercises should be approved by the Holy See, and that the Constitutions should be completed and observed in the whole Society. 
These three things are the work of St. Ignatius' life. He wrote the Exercises, he founded the Society, and he gave it its Constitutions. The motto under which his life was spent was Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam.
