Patience with those who need to be heard
  brings joy to My plan.
Practice this with those
  whom I bring to you.
Their hearts are heavy
  and their burdens painful.

Help them to see Me more clearly.
Help them open their hearts,
  and I will bless them with peace.
Learn to recognize these needs in others
  and listen to their stories as I would.

My servant needs no other favor than Mine.
Be open to these favors,
  as you will rejoice many times from its blessings.
What is more important than My desire for you.

Submit to this,
  and I may use you for My purpose.
Submit to My purpose,
  and your troubles will be small.
Submit to My purpose,
  and peace will come from My blessings.
Submit to My purpose,
  and My heart belongs to yours.

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.
