A virtual inter-religious prayer service, ‘AMDG – Conversations of the Heart’, prayed for peace on earth and renewal to normality. A global quiz competition, QU!Z IN!GO, conducted by the Karnataka Jesuit Province highlighted the path taken by the ‘soldier’ Inigo that led him to become St Ignatius.

The feast day dawned, it was a holiday – and all were locked down at home. Yet, the celebrations were not contained! A virtual festal Mass celebrated by Rev Fr Jerome Stanislaus D’Souza SJ ( Provincial, Karnataka Jesuit Province) brought home the festivities – a celebration of the work, ideology, principles and philosophies of St Ignatius of Loyola, as manifested by the Jesuits, through the centuries!
