What is Old is New: Spirituality of Ignatius Loyola
 
For our Lenten study, we will look at the wisdom of another age.  You will remember last year a discussion of the Benedictine approach to life.  This year we will explore the approach of another monastic movement.
    St. Ignatius of Loyola is the founder of the Society of Jesus. The Jesuits, as they are commonly called, formed in 1540. The community is defined by poverty, chastity and obedience as principles.  We will explore all of this in greater detail in the class.
    Ignatius developed a retreat to deepen the spiritual life.  He drafted the Spiritual Exercises  to enable the faithful to follow Jesus. The Exercises, like any work, are shaped by the times in which they were created.  The focus of this study will be exposure to the Exercises as constructed by Ignatius, and to modernize them for our devotion.
    Come and hear about the life and witness of Ignatius with an eye toward your own spiritual journey. Join us in the Parish House on Wednesdays, March 8, 15, 22 & 29, when we will gather at 6:30pm for our Lenten Soup & Salad Supper and then begin our Lenten program at 7:15pm. Make this a part of your Lenten practice!
