the battle of pamplona and his rehabilitation
In the early 1500s in Loyola, Ignatius was not the holy man as he was described as in the books, in fact he gambled drank and even brawled on the streets when he could. At one point he got into a fight where he had a choice to kill a man but he spared his life...
In the battle of pamplona(1521) ignatius got hit by a cannonball , his army surrendered because they had lost their spirit without him. The french thought that ignaties had fought so valiantly they spared his life and brought him into their care. During ignatius recovery the only books in the house were the life of saints , that influenced ignates to lead a life of christ...
So ignatius dedicated his whole life to christ and set up a christian community that was called the society of jesus, He succeed very well and was awarded the title of saint His order went on to set up a catholic school named Riverview,in fact that's the very school I attend today!
