Ignatius the Soldier

A reader has sent in this image of St Ignatius of Loyola spearing a heretic. Where’s that picture of me with big stick?

    Yes, but consider the splatters. Just think how messy and stained that would make your vestments!

    He could keep the vestments clean by donning a clear rain poncho over them. :)

    I'm going to be very respectful at Mass from now on. :)

    I am months late, but wouldn't it be more correct to describe this as St Ignatius spearing a personification of heresy, rather than one of heresy's slaves?I've had this "debate" with some of the older (polyester) Dominican nuns here in Sydney, who recoil in horror at the older images of St Dominic "trampling heretics".
