Sons of Ignatius

In the words of Pope Francis, there is no discipleship without mission. Fr. Niall Leahy and Fr. David Lugo take some time out of their week to talk about all things Catholic, especially the questions, issues and challenges we face as missionary disciples today. We also draw on the life and writings of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, who dedicated his life to serving Christ and inspired other men to do so.
