Episode 8. Spiritual Exercises – Discover the life and spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola in your classroom.

Continuing with the video series through which Young Jesuits Talk About Ignatius, here we share episode number 8 presented by Alex Dewitt SJ.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, but do you know what they really are? It’s a method of prayer that Ignatius began to write in Manresa, looking into the depths of his soul, discerning God’s action in it and realising that his experience could also help others to find God. The Spiritual Exercises are the heart and soul of Ignatian Spirituality, which has helped and continues to help so many people to find God in all things, in the same way as St. Ignatius.

This video series is a contribution shared by the Jesuit Curia and Voces Esejota. All teachers in our global community are welcome to use these videos in their classrooms to discover together with their students, the life and spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
