William Bangert, S.J. While it is well remembered that St. Francis Xavier was an original companion of St. Ignatius at the beginning of Jesuit Order, it has too often been forgotten that there was a very important third person who made up the original trio that were the foundation stones upon which Ignatius built the Society of Jesus. That third person was Blessed Peter Favre, the quiet, gentle and congenial companion of Francis Xavier and Ignatius who labored tirelessly to preach the Gospel with ceaseless travel through Italy, Portugal, Germany and the Netherlands, going wherever he was ordered by Ignatius to lay Jesuit foundations and win souls for Christ. This is the life of Peter Favre, first companion of St. Ignatius, a holy and energetic missionary who, as a young college student had met Ignatius and Francis Xavier at the University of Paris in 1525, and there began the origins of the great Society of Jesus. In this inspiring biography, Fr. William Bangert, S.J., has drawn on many essential historical sources and consulted various experts and documents to present a detailed, moving portrait of this prayerful, humble and zealous Jesuit who spent himself for the cause of Christ, packing into the last seven years of his forty years on earth an incredible program of travel and work that kept him always on the move "to the other towns" to proclaim the Kingdom of God.
