St. Ignatius was born as the youngest of thirteen children in Spain and became a Spanish soldier who fought against the French. He had to end his military career after he was hit by a cannonball. During his recovery, he read about the lives of the saints and decided to dedicate his own life to the Christian religion.

Later, he founded his own order called the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits.
