Provincial's Musings

As we come to the end of the Ignatian Year, we gather the fruits of our experience in “seeing all things new in Christ.”   How have we been affirmed or challenged on this journey? Celebrating the feast of St. Ignatius and retelling his life story is always for us his sons an inspiration and stimulus to the Magis in our own lives. Ignatian spirituality is an active spirituality, or rather, an interactive spirituality: the activity within a person and the activity without. All that happens outside us in the world all around us, in the circumstances of the people and things of our everyday life is discerned within the caves of our hearts and is brought forth as a generous response or action. Happy Feast of St Ignatius of Loyola!
