Your life’s events yield questions
  that cannot be answered.
Believe that answers are present,
  but you cannot see them.

What matters is not your full awareness
  but only your trust and faith.
Focus then on your trust in goodness.
Release your doubts and questioning,
  as these are not helpful.
Set your fears aside
  and open your heart to My methods.

Trust that My goodness is present
  amongst human confusion.
Trust that My hand directs life’s events.
With this belief, then,
  what concerns are necessary?
With this faith, then,
  only a happy heart should remain.

Life’s burdens should not own you.
Let these burdens
  be released unto encouragement.
Let My words
  lift your heart unto joy and peace.
Let these rewards
  fill your heart with contentment.

Ignatian Lessons and Meditations Arranged According to the Liturgical Year

Probing the Depths

October and November are the ideal months of year to begin this new approach to The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola! Learn why...

Do you know how to pray? Do you know how to discern the will of God? How do you best fulfill the mission of your life and give God the greatest glory? These are among the most foundational questions in life. One of the best ways to answer each one of these questions is through the spiritual teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.

Probing the Depths is a three-part book that presents the spiritual wisdom and lessons set forth by Saint Ignatius in The Spiritual Exercises. The content is presented in such a way that you can incorporate it into your daily life.

Part One presents a brief introduction to the life of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, an overview of The Spiritual Exercises, and an overview of ten lessons taught by Saint Ignatius in The Spiritual Exercises.

Part Two contains sixty-nine guided meditations on the topics Saint Ignatius recommends for his 30-day retreat. These meditations were written using the methods of meditation, contemplation and application of the senses that are taught by Saint Ignatius and are ideally used during a holy hour of adoration or in your quiet prayer time each day.

Part Three provides additional prayer material for use throughout the year.
