Ignatian Spirituality Series

Dear Friends,

St. Ignatius of LoyolaAlthough our site heavily favors Carmelite spirituality, this is not to say that Ignatian spirituality is to be discounted.  In fact, the Discernment of Spirits, which Saint Ignatius of Loyola — the founder of the Jesuits — developed, is an excellent tool for discernment, spiritual direction, and other such endeavors. Ignatian spirituality is also famous for its guided meditations and its examination of conscience. This post is designed to consolidate our offerings on Ignatian spirituality in one place (and if we missed one, please let us know).  This grouping together of posts makes for a handy reference for those who may be delving more deeply into this spirituality.

If you are interested in any of the posts below, just click on the link to access it! We will continue to add to our offerings, here, as they are published…so check back from time to time, if you are so inclined!
