“Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will…”
St. Ignatius Loyola, Spiritual Exercises, §234.
Many people deepen and broaden their relationship with God through regular visits to a spiritual director. Spiritual direction is a sacred conversation in which the director helps another to reflect on experiences of God in prayer and in the events of their lives.
Individual Jesuits and their collaborators are available for retreats and spiritual direction. One can usually establish contact with one or more of these at the various schools and parishes that the Society of Jesus of New England sponsors and/or staffs.
