All Things Jesuit

Setting the world on fire

November 8, 2010

In this powerful video, presented by National Jesuit News, five five newly ordained Jesuits of the Chicago and Detroit Provinces talk about their callings to "go forth and set the world on fire," in the words of St. Ignatius of Loyola.

On its website, National Jesuit News offers this description of its work: "Since St. Ignatius bought a printing press in 1556, the Jesuits have always been involved in communications through popular media. National Jesuit News began in 1971 as a way to keep Jesuits of the United States Assistancy informed of news which affects Jesuits and their works in America, and around the globe."
