Here are a few other ways to celebrate St. Ignatius:
- Read your favorite Bible adventure story. St. Ignatius was fascinated by the heroes and adventures he read about in the Bible. Choose your favorite Bible story and read it as a family. Some of our favorites here at CFC are Daniel and the lion’s den (Daniel 6), David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17), and Jonah in the belly of the whale (Jonah 1-2)!
- Do a cannonball! St. Ignatius was so brave that even cannon fire didn’t scare him! Next time you go swimming, do a cannonball in his honor!
- Add some Spanish flair to your feast. St. Ignatius was a Spanish soldier and saint. Incorporate a Spanish staple into your next meal, such as paella, churros, or Sangria!
- Daydream. St. Ignatius is known for his power of discernment. Spend some time today thinking about your life, dreams, goals and future. What makes your heart sing? What makes it feel heavy? Ask God to help guide you towards his will for you. Then be quiet and listen for his response.
