Tomorrow... for Christ

It was a transitional period in 1970, with the cold war, the War in Vietnam, communist expansion, and the uncertain global economy. Furthermore, it was during the period following Vatican II, when the Church in Thailand widely promoted the vocation to the priesthood and religious life. The Jesuits felt the same way. Therefore, the Jesuits themselves also promoted vocation, particularly to those interested in religious life through the pages of various Catholic journals and magazines.

The Ignatian Year

We join the Society of Jesus and who follow the ways of Ignatian spirituality in celebrating the Ignatian Year, May 20, 2021, the starting date for year, is the 500th anniversary of St. Ignatius Loyola’s injury during the Battle of Pamplona, which ultimately led to his conversion from soldier to saint. During the year, we’ll mark the 400th anniversary of canonization of St. Ignatius and St. Francis Xavier on March 12, 2022. The year concludes on the Feast of St. Ignatius, July 31, 2022.


The 500th Anniversary of St. Ignatius' Conversion

This memorial is the 500th anniversary of Ignatius’ injury during the battle at Pamplona, on May 20, 1521, when he was fighting to protect the fortress of Pamplona from the French soldiers.   He was seriously injured when a cannonball shattered his leg.  That injury took many months to heal; and it was during that time that Ignatius was changed, that he had his conversion, that is to say, he changed from being a daring soldier to becoming a saint.  This year, the Society of Jesus also remembers the 400th anniversary of the canonization of Ignatius and Francis Xavier, which will be celebrated on March 12, 2022.
