Saint Ignatius and the Company of Jesus - Book
By: August Derleth
This Vision book for youth 9 - 15 years old tells the exciting, dramatic story of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the order he founded, the Society of Jesus. As a young man, Ignatius had dreams of an adventurous life as a soldier. His dreams, however, did not come true the way he had hoped.
Seriously wounded in battle, the soldier Ignatius had a profound conversion to Christ during his period of healing and recovery. He abandoned a promising career in the military and dedicated the rest of his life to the service of Christ and the Church. This book tells of his starting one of the most influential orders in the church, and gives a graphic account of his adventures, his many encounters with popes, kings and emperors, and the great work the Jesuits did in spreading the Gospel. Illustrated

St. Ignatius of Loyola - Book
The Pilgrim Years
By: James Brodrick S.J.
It is generally agreed among his foes no less than among his friends that Ignatius of Loyola was a maker of history. A hundred books could be cited in proof of this statement, but the aim of this classic work is rather to show history and the grace of God forming the person of St. Ignatius. In this definitive biographical work, Fr. Brodrick combines scholarly research with a readable, enjoyable style in a book that endeavors to show the stages by which God led the wounded cavalier out of his dream-world of romantic battles in the service of fair ladies into the noontide of divine reality.
"The Pilgrimage", as he liked to call the difficult period of his spiritual apprenticeship, began when he was thirty and lasted for seventeen years of endless and often very moving trials. Out of it emerged a man completely transformed in Christ, one of the great saints in the history of the Church. Includes maps and index.
Fr. James Brodrick, S.J., is considered by many as the greatest Jesuit historian, and author of important classic works on Jesuit history and saints. He is the author of definitive biographies of St. Robert Bellarmine and St. Peter Canisius, and also the well-regarded works, The Origin of the Jesuits and The Progress of the Jesuits.

Ignatius of Loyola - DVD
Soldier - Sinner - Saint
This DVD can only be sold in the US and Canada.
This 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" is an incisive and thrilling look at the life of the real man behind the legend. In his lifelong quest to become the heroic knight of his fantasies, Ignatius stares death in the face again and again, having his leg shattered by a cannonball in battle; driven to near suicide by his inner demons; finding himself imprisoned, accused of being an illuminati; and finally finding his life in the hands of the Inquisition. Through it all, he would come to see the hand of God working in his life, shaping the self-obsessed sinner into the loyal and passionate soldier-saint. Widescreen
This DVD contains the following languages: English with English or Spanish subtitles.

5 "Making Of" film segments:
"The movie about Ignatius of Loyola is a masterpiece. It uses the power of modern film making to show the interior greatness of a man whose mission in life was truly to conquer death itself. Seeing the spirit of this giant of a man is an experience that will command honor and triumph in a world that is losing both to demonic forces. Watching this film will bring new depth to our inner lives that seek ways to build faith and courage."
— Mother Dolores Hart, OSB,Author, The Ear of the Heart: An Actress' Journey from Hollywood to Holy Vows
"Ignatius of Loyola was a soldier and an aristocrat. He was also a man touched by suffering from wounds of battle, wounds that prophetically taught him of the warfare surrounding the kingdom of God. This account of his early life is both gripping and moving, not to be missed."
— James V. Schall, SJ, Professor Emeritus, Georgetown University
"The appeal of this wonderful film flows from an exceptional cast led by Andrea Munoz as Ignatius and a conversion story that rivals Augustine's and ranks among the most decisive in the history of the Church. This is a fresh, deeply engaging portrait of the Jesuits' great founder – the former soldier who became a saint."
— Most Reverend Charles Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia, PA
"Casting a brilliant lead as "Inigo", each scene illustrates the continual conversion of one of the most momentous saints in our Church, and an invaluable leader for the Counter-Reformation. The film beautifully portrays to all Christians the enduring virtue necessary to become a constant convert and a passionate disciple of Jesus Christ, obedient to the Church He founded. Everyone who loves the saints must watch this movie now!
— Shaun A. McAfee, Founder, EpicPew.com
"Ignatius of Loyola's life was made for the big screen, and this new production captures beautifully the ongoing conversion of this soldier turned saint. Most striking is how Fr. Ignatius learned to pray in such a way that he could imagine and find the Lord Jesus dwelling in the business of everyday life. By reflecting on the experiences of his day, and then using the powers of his imagination and intellect, Ignatius came to show the world how God was to be found in all things."
— Fr. David Meconi, SJ, Editor, Homiletic & Pastoral Review
"Powerfully enthralling, entirely realistic and inspiring, Ignatius of Loyola is a must-see movie! Íñigo de Loyola, a handsome and heroic knight consumed with extravagance and the desire of glory, goes through hell and back after a devastating war injury. He reluctantly reads stories of Jesus and the saints while recuperating and is totally transformed to embrace the austere life of a beggar and contemplative, going on to spiritually instruct others, and eventually becomes one of the greatest saints of all time!"
— Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle, Author, The Kiss of Jesus
