He asked for a book that would answer his needs,

Some book about battles and chivalrous deeds,

But they gave him the Lives of the Saints which he read

From beginning to end as he lay ill in bed;

And when he had finished, he vowed and he swore

That he'd follow the saints and be worldly no more.

~I is for Ignatius in An Alphabet of Saints

A leg shattering wound from a cannonball changed the rough solider life of Ignatius of Loyola. Forced to spend several months healing he had nothing to do but read. He would have preferred chivalry and war tales but the only books available were religious or tales of the lives of the saints. (A solider in the 16th century was not a religious person.)

When the saint was able to walk, his life was completely different. He immediately limped on a pilgrimage to the monastery of Our Lady of Montserrat. At the alter, Ignatius dedicated himself to the service of Christ in the manner of a knight in the Middle Ages. This saint was to become the founding father of one of the world's greatest religious orders: the Society of Jesus.

It is interesting to note that St. Ignatius of Loyola organized the Jesuits like an army.

To make a religious order with a military spirit and way of being was the idea of St. Ignatius. The Society of Jesus is an army, its head is a general, the hierarchy is military, the obedience is military, the action is combative and carried out in a militant style.
