Ignatius of Loyola: Saint and Guru

The most recent edition of the electronic service of Company Magazine begins with a report about Hindu students, who "now consider [St. Ignatius of Loyola] their revered guru."

The saint's annual feast is 31 July.
For centuries the feast has been the Church's "exclusive affair," commented Jesuit Father Francis Palliparambil, the school headmaster. But this year "our students set a new historic trend," he told UCA News. He hopes students in Jesuit institutions in more than 100 countries will emulate his students.
