St Ignatius Loyola

I love this saint.  He was hard core as a soldier, and then hard core as a priest.  The reputation of the Jesuits before their suppression was nothing short of legendary.  I recently finished a book about the Jesuit efforts in New France, which I hope to post a review about sometime before the Eschaton, no promises.

If you don't get the joke, then you don't know your memes, which is probably a good thing.  The joke came to me at mass last Sunday, it took all I had to not giggle.

Awesome saint. I didn't know much about him. I read Catholic Encyclopedia entry. Wow, I didn't know he was all into chivalry. Reminds me of a Lenten poem I wrote depicting Jesus as a knight.
