FINDING GOD IN ALL THINGS
by Annemarie Paulin-Campbell
This week we celebrated the Feast of St Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits. Ignatius was once a rather self-centered nobleman in the Spanish court at the time of the Renaissance. After he was seriously wounded in a battle, he encountered God during the many months of convalescence and became so fired up with love of God that he gave his life to helping people to come to experience God’s invitation in their own lives. He later founded the Society of Jesus, also called the Jesuits, and wrote a book called the “Spiritual Exercises” based on his own experience of God which offers a process to help people discover God’s particular call in their lives.
