Historically, Ignatius spent the first thirty years of his life picking dagger fights and seducing Spanish noblewomen. Then a cannonball shattered his leg in 1521 and he decided to become religious. Very religious. Perversely religious. After bumming around Europe and Jerusalem on other people’s dimes for a while, he formed the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits, for the purpose of spreading Christianity, performing charitable acts, and destroying heresy.

Like the Promise Keepers, but with less hugging.
