Pope Francis & Ignatian Spirituality
Pope Francis’ words and actions have inspired people to want to know more about his spirituality. As a Jesuit, Pope Francis is guided by Ignatian spirituality. This presentation on Pope Francis & Ignatian Spirituality introduces some of the main elements of Ignatian spirituality and its approach to things using two ‘keys’ – the characteristics of an Ignatian work as articulated at the Jesuits’ General Congregation 35 in 2008 and the characteristics of the Jesuit way of proceeding set out at General Congregation 34 in 1994 – 1995.
I developed this presentation for the Faith In Action workshop organised by the Wollongong Diocese.
