'If you could hear the voice of God, would you want to keep it secret?' A historical drama based on the memoirs of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuit order. This is the story of a soldier, a man of vice and violence who, in his attempt to turn to the light, was forced to wrestle with his inner demons to the very brink of death. A Filipino production shot in Spain and the Philippines, the film chronicles his valiant but futile defense at the Battle of Pamplona, his struggles with depression and near-suicide, his trial before the Inquisition, and his ultimate vindication.
This is the first Filipino-produced film to be screened in the Vatican. See more »

The French gave me this limp, and this limp brought me to God. Probably the French can do something with my head.

Very important and inspiring film - shares God's wisdom as given to a Saint.
This film-story of St. Ignacio de Loyala's life and discernment of his career goals is very significantly presented and very well directed and acted. I felt myself fully absorbed in the viewing of a first screening for a private audience - I only wish I could gather more such viewers to re-view it, again and again, because as a career seeker myself and a career counsellor it is most inspiring. I'd like to pause the play function at times so that I could reflect longer on what it shows, and reflect together with other Christians on the message it carries for my life and those who like me who know that throughout one's life when winds of change happen, even those we think at times God should not have allowed others to interfere in - which leave our career plans practically capsized, or leave us with disabilities - we can still with God's grace somewhere rely on our renewed freedom in Christ, to correctly seek right authority to help us correct the set of our sails and our steps to do His Holy Will.
