BBC explores Ignatian Spirituality (come and try it for yourself)

September 27, 2021

Explore Ignatian Spirituality with us.

Beyond Belief is a BBC Radio 4 series which explores the place and nature of faith in today’s world. In this episode, special guests discuss the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola (1491 – 1556), founder of the Society of Jesus, more commonly known as 'Jesuits'.

St Ignatius is best known for his Spiritual Exercises, which is one of the world’s most influential books of prayer, meditation, and contemplation. The exercises take 30 days and must be done in silence and solitude. Every Jesuit must undergo the exercises twice during their formation. Lay people can also do retreats based on the exercises (check out the link below for more details).

One of the guests on Beyond Belief is Ruth Holgate, Director of St Beuno’s Jesuit Spirituality Centre. In her opening remarks, Ruth said:

"Ignatian Spirituality gives me a way of integrating my Christian faith - my belief and trust in God - with all the many varied and somewhat messy aspects of my life, so nothing is outside of that relationship."
