The Story Behind the Name

Shortly after his conversion, St. Ignatius of Loyola stopped in the small Spanish town of Manresa along the Cardoner River. His intention was to stay only a few days but he remained for ten months. It was in Manresa that the ideas and prayer experiences for what are now known as the Spiritual Exercises began to take shape.

It was also on the banks of the river that he had a vision, which is regarded as the most significant in his life. The vision was more of enlightenment, about which he later said that he learned more on that one occasion that he did in the rest of his life. St. Ignatius never revealed the exact content of the vision. However, it seems to have been an encounter with God that enabled him to see all of creation in a new light and meaning. This experience of seeing God in all things is one of the central characteristics of Ignatian spirituality.

Through his time at Manresa, he received the freedom to let go of his past and move on to begin what would eventually become the Society of Jesus.
