Five-hundred years ago, Ignatius of Loyola was wounded by a cannonball in the midst of battle, bringing all of his life plans to a halt and forcing on him a prolonged period of confinement and recovery. His time on the couch led to a profound conversion. He was never going to return to normal; rather, he set off for something new. "What's next?" was his question, as it is ours today.
