July 31 Feast of St Ignatius Loyola

Saint Ignatius founded the order of Jesuits  of which Pope Francis is a member.
Ignatius had a love for St. Francis of Assisi and in every Church of the Jesuits St. Francis' image can be found.

Ignatius' motto was "All for the Glory of God , in Latin 
"Ad Majorem  Dei Gloriam" 
Growing up Catholic the Sisters at school would have us put on the top of every paper we did  AMDG  .
It is a beautiful motto.
Happy Feast Day  to all the Jesuits especially the Holy Father  and to the Church
