Plenary indulgence for pilgrims on the Ignatian Way

July 31, 2015

Pope Francis has granted a plenary indulgence to pilgrims who travel on the Camino Ignaciano, or Ignatian Way, between July 31, 2015, and July 31, 2016.

July 31 is the feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.

The Camino Ignaciano, inaugurated in 2012, retraces the journey of St. Ignatius in northern Spain from Loyola to Manresa, where he lived in a cave and began to write the Spiritual Exericses.

The Pontiff called upon pilgrims to undergo a "journey of profound conversion" in which they ask whether Christ is "truly the center of my life."
