Saint Ignatius of Loyola
Inigo Lopez de Loyola, who later took the name Ignatius, was the youngest son of a nobleman of the mountainous Basque region of northern Spain. Trained in the courtly manner of the time of King Ferdinand, he dreamed of the glories of knighthood and wore his sword and breastplate with a proud arrogance.
When Ignatius was born in 1491, the Middle Ages were just ending and Europe was entering into the Renaissance. So Ignatius was a man on the edge of two worlds.
Europe of the late 15th Century was a world of discovery and invention. European explorers sailed west to the Americas and south to Africa, and scholars uncovered the buried civilizations of Greece and Rome. The printing press fed a new hunger for knowledge among a growing middle class. It was the end of chivalry and the rise of a new humanism. It was a time of radical change, social upheaval, and war.
In a quixotic attempt in 1521 to defend the Spanish border fortress of Pamplona against the French artillary, Inigo's right leg was shattered by a cannon ball. His French captors, impressed by the Inigo's courage, carried him on a litter across Spain to his family home at Loyola where he began a long period of convalescence.
During that time, he read several religious books, the only reading material readily available. These books and the isolation of the recovery period brought about a conversion which led to the founding of the Jesuits. Ignatius began to pray. He fasted, did penance and works of charity, dedicated himself to God and, after some troubles with the Spanish Inquisition, decided to study for the priesthood.
As a student in Paris he drew a small band of friends to himself and directed them in extended prayer and meditation according to his Spiritual Exercises. After further studies, the first Jesuits were ordained to the Catholic priesthood in Venice and offered themselves in service to Pope Paul III. In 1540, Paul III approved the Institute of the Society of Jesus. Ignatius was elected General Superior and served in that post until his death in 1556 at the age of 65.
This statue of the founder of the Jesuits (whose feast is on 31 July), which stand above his relics in the church of Il Gesu in Rome, is overlaid with silver, gold, jewels and enamels. Made between 1695-1700, it is a triumph of Baroque art, and a sign of the wealth and confidence of the Society of Jesus.
Indian crown jewels
Whilst traveling in India we were given the opportunity to try on the indian crown jewels (which england would never let you do). This is the main piece, a large solid gold medallion studded with real diamonds and emeralds. The chain is also made nearly entirely of emeralds. This peice was worth (if a value can be placed on such an object) tens of millions of pounds. In rupees the whole set was worth about quarter of a billion.

E. M. (Edward McKendree) Bounds has left a legacy of
Spirit-inspired sermons as relevant today and all future
tomorrows, as they were when he first spoke them. His
scriptural, powerful, and heartfelt teachings on foundational
themes, such as the great need for prayer—both prayer for
individual needs and corporate prayer for the Church—are so
stirring you may forget you are reading them because what he
is saying makes you feel that you are sitting in his congregation
absorbing the truth of his words as they flow into your spirit.
His sermon topics include revival, prayer meetings, Church
spiritual growth, family and personal growth, discipline,
purpose of the local church, spiritual principles, preaching,
spiritual leadership, thought life, evangelism, praise and
worship, Heaven, the Christian home, the Holy Spirit, sin,
self-denial, and faith, just to mention a few.
Because E. M. Bounds had children himself, his sermons
are written with the whole family in mind. His concerns for
the spiritual welfare of Christian families echo those of God
himself. Without a doubt his teachings were wrapped in love
and given as gifts to the whole family of God.
As you read these sermons, you will find that each one is
a journey into God’s will for your life, the lives of your loved
ones, family, friends, and those God brings into your life as
you walk this journey of faith with Him.
