Another Saint For Veterans
While recuperating, Ignatius began to read books on the life of Jesus Christ, and of Catholic saints. Inspired by what he read, he set out to change his life, and to follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As he began to have deeper spiritual experiences, he wrote out how he came to these experiences, and these writings formed the basis for his Spiritual Exercises. He guided his university companions through these Exercises, and together they would form the Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits.
