Focus TV’s Lisa Flood interviews Fr. Marty Gleeson and Mrs. Carol Weiler about the three part spiritual journey for women and men with St. Ignatius of Loyola.
St. Ignatius introduced people to Ignatian prayer by structuring the prayer experience around Christian virtues. Ignatian prayer has been in existence for almost 500 years, and it is said by some that the spiritual exercises were given to St. Ignatius by the Blessed Mother herself. As such, they have been safeguarded throughout the centuries. The exercises have shaped the spirituality of countless children of God including saints; drawing them into and guiding them to a very deep spirit filled relationship with God. This beautiful way to prayer is meant to open our hearts to a deep and wonderful relationship with the Lord, Jesus Christ.
