Maxims of Saint Ignatius
If he were to estimate glory, it must be sought in the only true one, which is that of God. The greatest of glories is to cooperate in the salvation of souls. Whoever comes to fear men will do nothing for God. What a real pain it is to have to see so many nations that do not know and ignore God Himself!
How few are those who understand what God would do for them if they gave themselves completely to Him! The renunciation of one’s own will is what is worth more than raising the dead. Saint Ignatius of Loyola was the one who won for God a large number of souls, who was in Paris, occupied in that place in worldly thoughts.
“Think, Francisco said one day the Saint, think that the world is a traitor, that it comes to promise and does not fulfill, more even if it fulfills what it promises, it will never be able to satisfy its heart. And even supposing that it satisfied him:
- How long is that venture going to last?
- Could it last longer than your life? And at the end of her, will you carry her happiness to eternity?
- Is there any powerful person who has come to bring to the afterlife neither a coin nor a servant for his service?
- Is there any other king who gets to have a piece of purple there to adorn himself?…”.
With these considerations, San Francisco Javier came to separate himself from the world, and followed San Ignacio de Loyola and became a great saint.
I ask you to take, great Lord, and also to receive all my freedom, my understanding, my memory and in the same way the will, as well as all that I have and possess. You who have given everything, to you, oh Lord, I return, all your being; he is willing to your every will. We ask you to give your love and your grace, that this be enough at all times.

It is well, the good and faithful servant, because you have become faithful in a little, so I will give you the care of much; Enter into the joy of your beloved Lord. So our God guided him along the paths of justice. And he also showed him the kingdom of God.
Oh God, who came to send the Church Militant a great and new aid through the blessed Saint Ignatius, to be able to spread the great glory of your name, for which we ask you to grant us, that we fight, following his example and for through his intercession on earth, we may be worthy to be crowned together with him in heaven. For our beloved Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
