Transcript

  • 1. By Owen Carr
    How to do the Spiritual Exercises
  • 2. What Are the Spiritual Exercises?
    The Spiritual Exercises are a compilation of prayers, meditations, and contemplative practices
    Created by St. Ignatius of Loyola to help deepen your relationship with God and to “conquer yourself”
  • 3. The Structure of the Exercises
    It is divided into four stages called “weeks”
    Was traditionally a 30 day event, usually spent in complete silence and solitude
    In recent years, a new 30 week event has been made to help fit into people’s busy lives
  • 4. Types of Prayer in the Exercises
    Meditation- pondering the basic principles that guide our life
    Discernment of Spirits- reflecting on your thoughts ,feeling, emotions, etc. and attempting to understand them
    Contemplation- relying on your imaginations to place yourself in a scene from the Gospels
  • 5. Week One
    It is a time to reflect on God’s love for us
    See that our response to God’s love is hindered by our sins
    End the first week with a meditation on Christ’s call to follow him
  • 6. Week Two
    Your meditations and prayer help you follow Christ like his disciples
    Reflect on:
    Christ’s birth and baptism
    His sermon on the mount
    His ministry on healing and teaching
    His raising of Lazarus from the dead
  • 7. Week Three
    Meditate on:
    The Last Supper
    The Passion and death of Christ
    See how his suffering and gift of the Eucharist are the ultimate example of love
  • 8. Week Four
    Meditate on:
    Christ’s Resurrection
    His apparitions to the disciples
    Think of ways to serve God in the world
