The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, written and refined during the years leading up to the founding of the Society of Jesus, are at the heart of what is called "Ignatian spirituality." This sequence of prayers and meditations, and guidelines for understanding God's action in one's life, form a remarkable spiritual resource which remains just a powerful today as was the case in the 16th century.
"Ignatian spirituality" references not only the Exercises but also certain characteristics that have become linked with this pattern of prayer such as "finding God in all things," "discernment of spirits," and "choosing for the greater glory of God."
There is much to explore and learn about Ignatian spirituality, both as a significant set of prayer guidelines and as a cornerstone of the Jesuit charism underlying all Jesuit institutions, including universities.
