Margaret Silf’s newest title, Just Call Me López: Getting to the Heart of Ignatius Loyola is available for free TODAY, 31st July.

It is the story of the unfolding friendship between a twenty-first-century woman and a sixteenth-century man, Íñigo López, the man we know today as St. Ignatius Loyola. We invite you to encounter his thoughts and heart in Silf’s innovative, thought-provoking book that speaks to the essence of Ignatian spirituality. We extend our thanks to Loyola Press for making this eBook available to our friends in Malta.

The eBook is available in many different formats for laptops or desktop computers, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Kindle, Android devices, Sony Reader, Windows 7 device, Acrobat and other devices.

31 Days with St Ignatius - A celebration of Ignatian Spirituality

In preparation for the feast of St Ignatius, ignatianspirituality.com prepared a wealth of material over a month. You may still access the material here.

On another note... Here's an invitation from the Jesuit Youth Network to a great experience which is sure to be a hit!

The setting: Loyola House in Naxxar, home to a good number of elderly Jesuits who have offered a lifetime of service in all corners of the globe.

Entitled 'WWW - A Week with the Wise' (we know a few familiar elderly eyebrows will be raised at that), this is a week-long experience where youth in touch with ignatian circles (University Chaplaincy, Christian Life Communities, previous volunteers and St Aloysius College Sixth Formers) will have the opportunity to share their life and energy with the elderly Jesuit community at Loyola House, who in turn will share their wealth of wisdom, anecdotes, experiences and expertise in a spirit of community and prayer.

Believe it or not, you will leave knowing more about exorcism, film, the Iliad, musicals, multicultural cookery and a myriad of other topics under the sun! And you will also leave with the knowledge that you too have shared some of your light.

Cick here to find out more about the programme 3-7 September. We can take up to just 15 applicants so hurry!
