Ignatian Spirituality

Finding God in All Things – In Everyday Life

A Christian spiritual tradition, Ignatian spirituality challenges us to encounter God in all things, witnessing to the joy of the Gospel. Based on the Spiritual Exercises written by St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, Ignatian spirituality gives us tools for the journey. We’re meant to go forth into the world as contemplatives in action, discerning God’s desire for our lives here, now, and acting on God’s invitation. We are women and men for and with others, hearing both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor—and responding. And we do all for the greater glory of God – Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam – AMDG.

Discernment and Ignatian Forms of Prayer

A spiritual discipline, Discernment calls us to notice the thoughts, emotions, desires that move within our heart and souls when we are considering situation or important decision. Where is the Holy Spirit leading us?
The Examen, a review of the day, in God’s presence is a foundational prayer of reflection that helps us go deeper into understanding of ourselves and God’s presence in the everyday.
Imaginative Prayer or Ignatian Contemplation is a manner of prayer that helps us use our imaginations as we read Sacred Scripture – bringing it to life.

Ignatian spirituality is one way to help us develop a deeper friendship with Jesus, drawing us closer to God.
