The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola is a short spiritual journey designed to direct the participant towards the discernment of God’s will and a renewed vigor to faithfully pursue him. St. Ignatius originally intended the manual to be used over the course of one month and under the supervision of a spiritual advisor. His meditations demand contemplation and the willingness to confront sin and dedicate oneself to a spiritual life.
