Loyola, Ignatius of - An hallucination of Christ
Type of Spiritual Experience
The next vision was the result of physical exhaustion and fasting – starvation in actuality because he had started his journey to Jerusalem without any money and was relying on begging for food, an approach which proved very problematical as the plague was ongoing at the time and he was often refused entry to cities and towns in case he had brought it with him.
A description of the experience
The Autobiography of Saint Ignatius Loyola
Ignatius could not, on account of his weakness, keep pace with the others, and was left alone in an open field. Then Christ appeared to him, as He had appeared on former occasions. By this vision he was greatly strengthened and consoled.
