In this workshop, we will explore St. Ignatius of Loyola’s teaching on discernment as applied to daily living. We will focus specifically on Ignatius’ classic rules (practical guidelines) for discerning what is of God and what is not in our daily spiritual experiences. We will examine Ignatius’ own experience, clarify the basic steps in discernment of spirits, and then indicate the practical tools Ignatius supplies for responding to spiritual consolation (joy in the Lord) and spiritual desolation (discouragement in the spiritual life). Ignatius’ primary focus in these 14 rules is to “set captives free” from the discouragement of spiritual desolation.
