“Ite Inflammate Omni,”
Go and Set the World on Fire!
Legend has it that when St. Ignatius of Loyola missioned his best friend and fellow Jesuit St. Francis Xavier to be a missionary to the Far East, he knew that he was not likely to see him again. As Ignatius sent Xavier off to his new mission, he told him, “Ite Inflammate Omnia,” or go and set the world on fire. Drawing on this image of setting the world on fire, we’ve named our weekly student gathering Ig.nite.
Our undergraduate-led ministry serves to ignite students’ desire for faith and friendship through faith-based conversations. We begin always celebrating mass grounded in our relationship with Jesus who is the source and summit of our lives.
What is Ig.nite?
Ig.nite begins with an undergraduate student-led live-streamed mass at 5:10 PM every Thursday.
