PROGRAMMES BY FR CHRIS GLEESON, SJ

Ignatian Spirituality for Mobile People

The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, wanted his men to be on the move and not to be confined to a monastery as was the custom of previous religious orders. Hence the central point of Ignatian spirituality is the capacity to find God in all things – in all the highs and lows of life. This talk will develop this theme.

Date: Wednesday, 27 February 2019

This lecture will develop these qualities of attitude.
