Contemplatives in action

If we want to discover God in our lives, we need to take the time to seek Him there. This means stopping, taking moments out of the rush of modern life, to listen for the voice of God. It then means finding the ways of praying that work for you. This counter-cultural way of living is how Jesuits live, and because of this we have been referred to throughout our history as ‘contemplatives in action’.

Ignatian Spirituality has proved itself as a tried and tested pathway to God for millions, a way of navigating life’s complexities, and a spiritual treasure from Catholic tradition for the world.

Ways of praying

St Ignatius has real insight into how different people connect with God in different ways, once writing, ‘It is dangerous to make everybody go forward by the same road’. So, find what works for you!

Here you will find many ways of praying, various meditations and reflections, tools for decision-making, imaginative exercises and retreat experiences, all drawing from the richness and tradition of Ignatian Spirituality.
