Formation in Ignatian Spirituality


In a time when many are searching for greater meaning and “to find God in all things” the Jesuits have a handbook on this search. It is The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. Often described as Ignatius’ greatest gift to the world, these exercises unfold a dynamic process of prayer, meditation, self-awareness and finding God in all things. St. Ignatius of Loyola began writing about the emotions that took hold of him — feelings of gratitude and anguish, consolation and sadness — while encountering the scriptures. The basic thrust is to make us more attentive to God’s activity in us and our world, to have more Christ-like attitudes and to become more responsive to what God is calling us to do. Ignatian spiritual directors accompany or guide people through the exercises.
