society-of-jesus-logoPastor’s Series on Jesuit Spirituality

Presentations are 7:30-9 pm in the PC Library and are Led by our Pastor, Fr. Warren, S.J.

Tuesday, May 22: What is Jesuit Spirituality?
Have you ever wondered what Jesuit Spirituality is, especially as we talk about being the Jesuit parish of the Twin Cities? We’ll explore what’s unique about Jesuit spirituality, what some of St. Ignatius of Loyola’s unique insights were, and why so many people find that it speaks to them.

Thursday, June 14: Discernment of Spirits
How do you choose between good options in the big and small decisions in your life? How do you make good, prayerful decisions? How do you discover God’s will for you at any given time? This presentation will show how Ignatian Spirituality helps you have a proper disposition when approaching decisions and gives practical strategies for making a prayerful decision.

Thursday, July 19: Pope Francis’ Exhortation “Rejoice and Be Glad”
Pope Francis is a Jesuit and his Jesuit spirituality shines through in his recent apostolic exhortation “Rejoice and Be Glad.” He speaks about our call to holiness in today’s world and gives very simple but profound ways to respond to God’s call for us to be holy. This presentation will look at some of the highlights of his exhortation, how they are expressions of Ignatian spirituality, and how they might apply to us.

gaudete-et-exsultate-vertical

On April 9th the Vatican released the latest Apostolic Exhortation from Pope Francis - Gaudete et Exsultate:
On the Call to Holiness in Today’s World

1. “REJOICE AND BE GLAD” (Mt 5:12), Jesus tells those persecuted or humiliated for his sake. The Lord asks everything of us, and in return he offers us true life, the happiness for which we were created. He wants us to be saints and not to settle for a bland and mediocre existence. The call to holiness is present in various ways from the very first pages of the Bible. We see it expressed in the Lord’s words to Abraham: “Walk before me, and be blameless” (Gen 17:1).

2. What follows is not meant to be a treatise on holiness, containing definitions and distinctions helpful for understanding this important subject, or a discussion of the various means of sanctification. My modest goal is to repropose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time, with all its risks, challenges and opportunities. For the Lord has chosen each one of us “to be holy and blameless before him in love” (Eph 1:4).  Read the exhortation.  Order a printed copy.
