Ignatian Spirituality celebrates the possibility of finding God in every person, place and situation.
You might recognize the image from the “Ignatian Inspirations” calendar a couple of years ago. I love it, because it correctly suggests that there is nothing too mundane, too earthy and too humble that is excluded from the ability to find God in all things and, in all things, to be found by God.
Other spiritual traditions, starting with the monks in the desert in the earliest centuries of Christianity, withdrew from the world into convents and monasteries so that they wouldn’t be distracted in their search for God.
St. Ignatius threw that theory out the window, explaining that God can be found anywhere and everywhere. Ignatian Spirituality doesn’t mistrust the world and its cares as somehow unholy, it embraces the world and everything in it as capable of manifesting God’s presence and loving concern.
