Aspects of Ignatian Spirituality


Jesuit Father Dan Joyce, assistant to the vice president for mission at Saint Joseph’s University, Philadelphia, is currently presenting a four-part series on aspects of Ignatian Spirituality at Saint Thomas More Parish, Cherry Hill.

The topics are:

— Thursday, Sept. 21, “Finding God in All Things: A World of Sin and Grace.”

— Thursday, Sept. 28, “Entering into the Life of Christ” and

— Thursday, Oct. 5, “Co-laboring in the Kingdom of Love.”

Saint Ignatius of Loyola, a Spaniard who pursued a religious vocation after being wounded in battle as a soldier, was the founder of the Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits. He wrote the Spiritual Exercises in the 16th century following his personal conversion.

He was canonized in 1622.

In 1989, Saint John Paul II said, “When we think of the enormous good that has come to the church from this heritage of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, we cannot but ardently pray that there will be a widespread renewal of the practice of the Spiritual Exercises throughout the church.”
