Ite Infammate Omnia

Reportedly, Ignatius commissioned Francis Xavier to India (before either was deemed a saint) with the words above, loosely translated as "Go and set the world on fire" but transliterated (by Google Translate, anyway, and with inflammate spelled with one 'm') as "Go all aflame" -- a big difference, in my thinking!
