The Ignatian Guide to Spiritual Conversation

Ignatian Spirituality

By Michael Hansen, SJ.
May 29th, 2019

Spiritual conversation begins and ends with silence. Silence creates the space for listening. Silence also allows one to simply be, simply be in the now, simply be in the presence of the other. Contemplative silence is simply being in the presence of God. This is the “better part” that Mary chose over Martha’s activity.
