Ignatian Spirituality sees God as creating us in each new moment.
God is intimately involved with us.
All of Christianity is incarnational – the Incarnation is the belief that God in Jesus joined Himself to our humanity. Catholics, because of our Sacraments and traditions, are probably more incarnational than many other forms of Christianity. Within this already rich environment, Ignatian Spirituality is almost hyper-incarnational. Unlike some, who see God as distant or removed from creation, St. Ignatius believed in a God who is creating us in every moment. It is Joe Tetlow, S.J. who, I believe, said that God creates us “momently.” We have, therefore, a God who is passionately committed to creation and who cares deeply about each of us.
Here at Loyola Press, this orientation means that we always strive to present God as knowable and loveable. In our catechetical materials, for instance, we use verbs in the present tense (e.g., “God creates us,” not “God created us.”)
We assume God’s loving involvement in our lives rather than acting as if we need to earn God’s care and attention.
