Olive Shows Itself in Deeds not Words

Here's something you don't see every day.  The story of St. Ignatius Loyola as told by a talking Spanish olive.  And--guess what?--it's actually quite accurate.  High marks to the stuffed Spanish olive, which has apparently been poring over The First Jesuits.  This fun video is courtesy of Jason Kapell of the Fairfield University Media Center.  Favorite part: Ignatius cuffs the fellow dressing his wound at Pamplona.  Go Stags!

Fantastic!I am going to send it to everybody I know as it is a breath of fresh air.What a Saint and what a video. A Jesuit (not naming names)once called him "like a taciturn unclewho has paid for your college education  " but we can also see this was a man who lived and lived an extraordinary life.AMDG indeed.
