Formation and the Practice of Discernment

An injury suffered in Pamplona launched Ignatius of Loyola on a journey that we honor five-hundred years later. What is the meaning of this moment for a University community?

As part of Georgetown’s commemoration of the 500 year anniversary of St. Ignatius of Loyola’s ‘cannonball moment’–when Ignatius, while recovering from a battle wound, discerned a new direction for his life and, consequently, founded the Society of Jesus–the Spring 2022 Dahlgren Chapel Sacred Lecture will be given by the President of Georgetown University, Dr. John J. DeGioia.
