The Spiritual Exercises
A four week retreat written by Ignatius while he lived in the cave outside Manresa.
Broken up into three sections.PurposePresuppositionPrinciple and Foundation
The purpose of the Spiritual Exercises is to conquer yourself.
You conquer yourself through mortification.
Mortify- Latin for “death” So to mortify yourself means to kill
everything within yourself that is not what God wants from me.
To give the other person the benefit of the doubt.
Principle and Foundation
Man is created to praise, reverence, and serve God our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.
Nothing else matters in composition to this fact.
What God wants from me = what my purpose in life is.
