The Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola

Ignatius learned from his own experience that God not only wants a personal relationship with each person, but also acts in this world to bring about such a personal relationship. The Spiritual Exercises are ways of helping us to become more aware of the reality of our existence as the recipients of God’s communication.

As persons of faith, we become more alert for God. The Exercises sharpen our ability to discern and feel the finger of God. All of this builds upon our desire to become more and more aware of God in relationship with us.
