For St Ignatius, the starting point is to realise deeply that you are loved by God just as you are. You are, in truth, a loved sinner.
Loved sinners are called by God to a life of loving service. This is Jesus’ call to you, how will you respond?
In meditating deeply on the suffering and death of Jesus, you can come to understand the depth of God’s self-sacrificial love for you.
The story does not end there. The fourth and final part of the exercises recognises how the risen Christ is joyfully present in your life and the life of our world.
