Bowled Over: Ignatius, the Cannonball and God | Chaplaincy

20th May marks the 500th anniversary of the moment when a cannonball ripped through the legs of Ignatius of Loyola and set in train events which would change his life and have an extraordinary impact on the world.

To mark the anniversary, Fr Adrian Porter SJ offers a reflection on this momentous event, on the way it played out in Ignatius’ mind, leading to his conversion and a whole new way of relating to God. Using images and extracts from the writings of St Ignatius, this will be an opportunity to observe close-up the way in which God deals “immediately” (as Ignatius phrases it) with a soul and the soul “with its Creator and Lord”.

No prior knowledge of St Ignatius or his spirituality is required.  All are welcome.
