Not since the release of Mary of Nazareth in 2013 has there been such an epic Catholic film of this scope, quality and grandeur! The last full-length feature film on St. Ignatius of Loyola was produced nearly 70 years ago. This incredible film, produced by Jesuit Communications (JesCom), is based on true events in the life of the founder of the Jesuits, St. Ignatius of Loyola.
The movie about Ignatius of Loyola is a masterpiece. It uses the power of modern film making to show the interior greatness of a man whose mission in life was truly to conquer death itself. Seeing the spirit of this giant of a man is an experience that will command honor and triumph in a world that is losing both to demonic forces. Watching this film will bring new depth to our inner lives that seek ways to build faith and courage.

Ignatius of Loyola is the story of an extraordinary missionary disciple of Jesus Christ. It is a stirring drama, an epic adventure, and a portrait of an intimate and profound friendship with the Lord. I was inspired by the incredible story of holiness in this movie, and you will be too.

An intense, riveting, and sometimes raw look at the life of Ignatius of Loyola. This provocative film holds viewers captive from the opening scene to the last, and compels them to consider their own depth of commitment to God, His Church, and their witness to others. I was impassioned and inspired to stand in the breach with Inigo de Loyola! – Johnnette Benkovic Founder, Women of Grace EWTN Radio and Television Host
