St. Ignatius of Loyola

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola

translated by Elder Mullan

[1914]

These are the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, a plan of contemplation to be carried out over about a month. St. Ignatius of Loyola (1419-1556) was the founder of the Jesuits, and was canonized by Pope Gregory XV in 1622. He published the Spiritual Exercises in 1548. The Exercises were intended for use during a retreat; and are a central part of the first year training of Jesuit novitiates. However, one does not have to be a Jesuit-in-training to take advantage of the Exercises: Increasingly, lay people and even non-Catholics follow this path.

"Amazon supports Plannred Parenthood."

Salvation, do you have a link confirming that?

It's not that I don't believe you, but I've been pointing people to Amazon for various books for a long time, and I would like to see that myself.    I also believe Father Mitch Pacwa has something about Amazon on his own website for ordering his books and videos, so I'd like to share that information/confirmation link with his team as well somehow if I can.

Thanks.

Perhaps it was this. But I have also known that they supported PP before too.

Thank you.

BTW, Amazon also supports the perverted redefinition of marriage. I am done with them.

The One Lesson We Should All Learn From Saint Ignatius Of Loyola

Earlier this year, I used my nightly radio show to lead a retreat based upon the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Although it was hard work it produced great benefits in many of our spiritual lives. Even though I’d heard of St. Ignatius and his Spiritual Exercises for many years, I knew very little about him or his teaching. Looking back on the experience, there was one lesson I learned that changed my life forever. It’s a simple concept and it can change your life too. It involves St. Ignatius’ motto:

“Ad majorem dei Gloriam”

Latin for “for the greater glory of God”, this expression is much more than a “cutesy” catch phase. When put into practice, it will not only ensure that you’re giving God your best effort, but it will put you on the fast track to Heaven! What it means is simply this – everything that you do should be done for the greater glory of God. Yeah, so…don’t we all do this? Not really. When we have to make a choice between two options, we often go with the choice that “feels good” or is less unpleasant. Unfortunately, that’s not always the choice that gives God the greater glory. He sometimes wants us to do something that we’d rather avoid. You know, like talking to that annoying person after Mass or turning off the TV and saying some prayers instead. Think about the many choices you make each day and then think about why you make them. How often do we take the easy way out instead of doing the right thing? While judging our personal motives can sometimes be tricky (because we fool ourselves), frequent prayer can open our eyes and help us to look at things objectively.

If there’s one thing that we should learn from the teachings of St. Ignatius of Loyola, it’s that every decision, every action, every word we speak should be done for the greater glory of God. When faced with a decision, asking the question, “what would God want me to do?” puts St. Ignatius’ important teaching into practice. By doing that, we can honestly say that we’re loving God with all of our heart, soul and might (Deuteronomy 6:4)!

St. Ignatius of Loyola, pray for us!

Thanks for the links Salvation.

I'm really sorry to learn this about Amazon. I've saved so much money buying books and other things there.

There are no Catholic book stores near me, and other online booksellers charge a fortune for shipping.

(For example - a book costing $9.95 at another web site carried a $6.95 shipping charge.)

Someone at our church gets a great discount because she is a member.

I finally mentioned Barnes and Noble to her.

But, even though it costs more, I buy most of my books either at the used book store or the Catholic Book Store that is across the street from it. Really handy!

Next month we are reading “Father Elijah” by Michael O’Brien. I hear it is a page-turning apopalyptic novel — based on what is really happening in our world today.
