Ignatian spirituality is grounded in the conviction that God is active in our world. It is a way of discerning God’s presence in our everyday lives.
The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius unfold a dynamic process of prayer, meditation, and self-awareness. The basic thrust is to make us more attentive to God’s activity in our world and more responsive to what God is calling us to do.
Ignatian spirituality is not merely an inward journey, much less a self-absorbed one. It aims to bring people more deeply into the world—with gratitude, passion, and humility—not away from it.
