Ignatian Spirituality For Beginners

This retreat has already started, if you would still like to take part then please contact us.

This day will look at Ignatian Spirituality and in particular the daily prayer known as the 'Review of the Day' or the 'Daily Examen'. It will be a help to those who need to find God in the midst of busy lives.

What is Ignatian Spirituality?
The Ignatian mind-set is strongly inclined to reflection and self-scrutiny. The distinctive Ignatian prayer is the Daily Examen, a review of the day’s activities with an eye toward detecting and responding to the presence of God.

Three challenging, reflective questions lie at the heart of the Spiritual Exercises, the book Ignatius wrote, to help others deepen their spiritual lives:

“What have I done for Christ?
What am I doing for Christ?
What ought I to do for Christ?”

On this day retreat we will look at the Examen together and consider some practical spirituality for praying the day.
