Ignatius Exercises and an Advent Meditation

Reclaiming the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius

How can the Spiritual Exercises, written by a man steeped in a patriarchal context over five hundred years ago be offered in a way that facilitates a liberating encounter with Christ for women today? This is the subject Dr. Annemarie Paulin-Campbell will be addressing in her essay: “The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius: Liberating Possibilities for Women.” And if you like the essay, you’ll love the book she wrote with Elizabeth Liebert.


Entering Advent

We offer you two more opportunities for the appreciation of Advent. In the first, you’ll find the first in a four-part series of reflections offered by the Martin Institute. Steve Porter introduces the series and the first reflection, “Advent Meditation: Wonderful Counselor” is written by Scott Lisea, Campus Pastor (Westmont College).
