Day 3: Francis and Ignatius gather a “group of friends” (1534-1536)

Ignatius Loyola directed Francis and some others through his ‘Spiritual Exercises’ – 30 days of prayer and reflection on life and its purpose.

After a period of reflection on the call of Christ to His disciples, and time spent in consideration of his own response to the love of God, Francis decided to join Ignatius and some others to form a “group of friends” who would offer themselves to God for service in the Catholic Church.


  • What steps have I taken to deepen my knowledge and love of God?
  • Who are the people who help me live more deeply my Christian life?
  • In what way do I manifest signs of my love for God and for others?
