I’m trying to get of sense of people’s experiences.
How often do people hear about the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius in Mass or the Bulletin? Several people saying “never” would be an interesting response too.
The Spiritual Exercises are the major work by Saint Ignatius who was one founders of the Jesuits and their first superior general (There are actually several founders of the Jesuits). The Spiritual Exercises play a major role in the formation of Jesuits, but lay people have found considerable value in them to.
I’m finding my experience strange. While I heard several homilies about Ignatius at the Jesuit Parish I’ve attended, very rarely, if ever, do they specifically mention the Spiritual Exercises and what is contained in them. At some of the diocesan parishes I’ve attended they will go into great detail about the spiritual exercises and what is contained in them in the mass or bulletin.
What are people’s experiences?
