Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola is a series of prayers, meditations, and contemplation that involve a month of spiritual practices.  The purpose of the Saint Ignatius spiritual exercises are to offer Catholics a method to make their faith become strong and relevant in their everyday lives.

Pope Benedict XVI Quote on February 21, 2008

“The Excercises are the fountain of your spirituality and the matrix of your Constitutions, but they are also a gift that the Spirit of the Lord has made to the entire Church: it is for you to continue to make it a precious and efficacious instrument for spiritual growth of souls…..”
