5. Ignatian Spirituality
- The spirituality of St. Ignatius Loyola was a unique one that utilized the analogy of spiritual warfare with the evil one.  Spirituality revolved around strict military like discipline, spiritual war with Satan, and a Christo-ecentric  goal.  Everything revolves around Christ and the Spiritual Exercises emphasize this dependency on Christ as one focuses and meditates on Christ’s life.  This course will examine the life of St. Ignatius and his Spiritual Exercises.  It will also emphasize Ignatius’ ideals on examination of conscience, discernment, choices, meditation and types of prayer.  It is our hope that this course will enlighten you to new and interesting concepts regarding spirituality and the unique character of St. Ignatius Loyola.
