“…he came to perceive the different spirits that were moving him; one coming from the devil, the other coming from God.”
Autobiography of St. Ignatius of Loyola
I begin a series on St. Ignatius of Loyola’s rules for discernment of spirits, drawing on Fr. Timothy Gallagher’s material as well as the actual rules from the Spiritual Exercises.
In this talk, I give a brief history of Ignatius’s life and how he started to understand the different movements of the heart – what was coming from the enemy and what was coming from God.
