CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis proposed St. Ignatius of Loyola as a model as he continued his series of talks on discernment at his public audience on September 7.

Recounting the story of St. Ignatius’ conversion, the Pope commented:

The thoughts of the world are attractive at the beginning, but then they lose their luster and leave emptiness and discontent; they leave you that way, empty. Thoughts of God, on the contrary, rouse first a certain resistance... but when they are welcomed, they bring an unknown peace that lasts for a long time.
