Prescient Post?

St. Ignatius of Loyola admired St. Francis of Assisi. On Ignatius’ feast in 2009 ThinkingFaith posted an adaptation of an earlier essay by Brian Purfield. He explored “the spiritual experiences of the founder of the Society of Jesus with those of Francis of Assisi.”

With a Jesuit Francis as pastor of the Catholic Church his essay seems more than farsighted. On the eve of the Memorial of St. Francis of Assisi ThinkingFaith reposted it.
