The timeless spirituality of St. Ignatius Loyola appears in the almost 6,800 letters he wrote to popes, emperors, benefactors, family, friends, Jesuits and others. Concepts familiar from the Spiritual Exercises, such as finding God in all things, discernment of spirits and striving for the greater glory of God, appear in these writings. But his letters also reveal a practical administrator, a loving friend and a prudent counselor on how to deal with a diversity of people and situations. This course will explore what these letters say to us in the 21st Century.
The four session course will meet Wednesday evenings, 7:00 - 8:15 p.m. at St. Rita Catholic Church, Dallas on the following dates: October 3, 10, 17, & 24
Materials: will be provided
