St Ignatius of Loyola in the Cave of Manresa

In 1522, St Ignatius pledged his loyalty to the Mother of God by visiting her shrine at the Benedictine monastery of Montserrat in Catalonia, and then began a year of prayer and penance in the cave at Manresa not far away. Here he wrote and engaged in penitential exercises, and this led to the compiling his classic, the Spiritual Exercises. This stained glass window in the church of St Ignatius Loyola in New York City shows St Ignatius in the cave at Manresa, where Our Lady guides him.
