    Jesuit Ignatius Loyola "Spiritual Exercises" BUZZ words

    in History

    Key Buzz words, contemplative prayer, experiential Christianity, relational Christianity are key words in understanding spiritual formation.
    The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola (composed from 1522–1524) are a set of Christian meditations, prayers and mental exercises, divided into four thematic 'weeks' of variable length, designed to be carried out over a period of 28 to 30 days. They were composed with the intention of helping the retreatant to discern Jesus in his life, leading him to a personal commitment to follow him. Though the underlying spiritual outlook is Catholic, the exercises can also be undertaken by non-Catholics. The 'Spiritual Exercises' booklet was formally approved in 1548 by Paul III.
    The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius form the cornerstone of Ignatian Spirituality[3]—a way of understanding and living the human relationship with God in the world exemplified in the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Although originally designed to take place in the setting of a secluded retreat, during which those undergoing the exercises would be focused on nothing other than the Exercises, in his introductory notes, Ignatius provides a model for completing the Exercises over a longer period without the need of seclusion. The Exercises were designed to be carried out while under the direction of a spiritual director. The Spiritual Exercises were never meant only for the vowed religious. Ignatius of Loyola gave the Exercises for 15 years before he was ordained, and years before the Society of Jesus was even founded. After the Society was formed, the Exercises became the central component of the Jesuit novitiate training program, and they usually take place during the first year of a two year novitiate. Ignatius considered the examen, or spiritual self-review, to be the most important way to continue to live out the experience of the Exercises after their completion.

    Return Viewer's Guide #5

    in History

    Tonight I am going to do a bit of updating. Also I may play a couple of tunes. Then I am going to have a look at the first part of my fifth Return Viewer's Guide. Thanks for joining me.__ 1. Shortly, a very massive crater covered forward rolling moon coloured object is going to roll down across between the Earth and the Moon. The forward rolling, slowly sinking object crosses between the Earth and the Moon moving from the upper left to the lower right.

    2. The object is smaller than the Moon. The object crosses at a point between the Moon and Earth at a point far enough out from the Moon towards the Earth so that the object's smaller size, relative to the size of the Moon, is able to completely obscure or eclipse the Moon.

    3. At a certain point the total eclipse ends. The Moon's light emerges above the object's upper right horizon and is spread out wide open to the right and upper right of the object. I think of it as "Moon Rise." Obviously the Moon does not actually "rise," instead the crossing object's surface is sinking down allowing the Moon to be seen above it's forward rolling surface and especially to the right were the Moon's light opens up and spreads out.

    4. When the object is crossing between the Earth and the Moon the Sun's light that has reflected off the Moon's surface and is now traveling toward the viewer on Earth becomes transformed as it passes over the crossing object's fast moving, forward rolling, slowly sinking surface.
    The Moon's light suddenly does not look or behave at all like the sight of the Moon. Some sort of very fantastic effect is generated and/or caused by the crossing object's forces. 5. The object's largest surface feature, as far as I know, is a rounded smoothly curved raised area. It rolls up into view over the top of the forward rolling, forward moving, slowly sinking object.
