Faithful Christians desire to do God’s will in their lives but often do not know how. In our Christian tradition, St. Ignatius of Loyola is the primary exponent of a practical teaching on how to discern God’s will. In this workshop, we will explore that teaching: discerning God’s will in the different kinds of choices we face; the foundation of discernment; the necessary disposition; the spiritual means; and the three modes in which God’s will may be discerning – clarity beyond doubting, an attraction of the heart, and a preponderance of reasons. We will examine all these ways through real-life experiences.
