Must-watch!!! Showing on July 27, 2016: A modern and very human take on the story of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, often called “The Saint of Second Chances.” As a brash, hot-headed soldier in a time of political upheaval in Spain, the young Iñigo went from living a life of brutal violence and debauchery, to becoming one of the greatest saints in the history of the Roman Catholic Church.
This film chronicles Iñigo’s torturous struggle to turn from darkness to light—a struggle that nearly destroyed him, but also gave him the key to a spiritual weapon that continues to save lives to this very day.
Produced by Jesuit Communications Philippines (Jescom), IGNACIO DE LOYOLA was shot on location over two months in the northern regions of Spain. Kitakits sa sinehan!
