He was the youngest of thirteen brothers and sisters.
3: He attended St. John Catholic School. He was a good little boy; he was a page at the court of Ferdinand and Isabella (rulers of Spain).
5: He was kind and responsible (other than his addiction to gambling). But his problem was not that big of a deal to him.
7: One day while he was at school, Jeremy, the meanest bully of the entire school, stole his lunch money. Ignatius was not very happy, so he decided to go and tell the teacher.
8: While he was walking, he tripped over a tree stump and landed on his arm. As he started to cry, his teacher rushed to the scene. He was sent to the nurse's office. | His father came to pick him up; he was rushed to the hospital to find out that he had broken his arm.
11: He would not be able to go to school for two weeks. He was infuriated because he would never get to tell the teacher what Jeremy had done.
13: One day, while he lay in his bed, he thought about Jeremy and how he was, without a doubt, still at school stealing other children's lunch money. | The day that he returned to school, he decided that he was not going to tell the teacher of Jeremy's actions, but he was going to create a club. In his club there would be other victims of Jeremy's bullying.
15: The club met every day at recess and talked about things that they could do to stop the bullying. Together they came up with an idea to make peace with Jeremy. So, one day, during their lunch hour, they accompanied Jeremy at his table. The other kids of the lunchroom sat in awe. None of them had ever gotten up the courage to sit with a bully at his table! “What are you thinking?!” Jeremy said in disbelief. Ignatius and his friends remained in the seats and began to chat with him.
17: At first, Jeremy did not want to have anything to do with Ignatius but he soon became friends with him and they created a peace between one another. Jeremy joined Ignatius's group and decided to no longer bully other kids. Other bullies of the school slowly began to follow Jeremy's actions. The peace was historic to ST. John Catholic School.
19: Epilogue After Ignatius finished grade school, he went to war and was hit by a canon ball. He wrote a book called Spiritual Exercises. His biggest success was the founding of the Jesuits; his biggest failure was his political policies. He attended the University of Alcala, and the University of Paris where he was imprisoned at Salamanca by the inquisition. He studied Latin when he was 33 so that one day he could be a priest. He had a great impact on the Catholic Reformation when he created the Jesuits; they helped to turn the non-Christians into Catholics. Ignatius of Loyola died in Rome on July 31, 1556.
