31 Days with Saint Ignatius

I was going to do a post on the Ignatian 31 day countdown to the Feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola on July 31.  Ignatian prayer had a profound influence on the attitude and ideas of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.

I found out that Fran Rossi Szpylczyn of the outstanding blog “There Will Be Bread” had already done one so rather than duplicate efforts I will borrow from her. I encourage you to check out other posts from her outsanding blog.

There Will Be Bread

9388_10151703982151450_1218080999_nJuly 31 is the feast day of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits. If you were not familiar with the Jesuits before, the election of Pope Francis, who is a Jesuit, may have raised your consciousness about them.

The Society of Jesus, the full name of the Jesuit order,  have a long and important history in the Church, but that is not what I am here to share today. As the image above points to, July brings us 31 Days with Saint Ignatius from Loyola Press. You will also notice a link to this in the sidebar of this blog. I hope that you will follow along with the different Ignatian inspired posting for each day.

Today’s post is about the Examen, and I highly recommend it. And while I am a day late, don’t take that as a signal to miss the post…

About William Ockham

I am a father of two with eclectic interests in theology, philosophy and sports. I chose the pseudonym William Ockham in honor of his contributions to philosophy, specifically Occam's Razor, and its contributions to modern scientific theory. My blog (www.teilhard.com) explores Ignatian Spirituality and the intersection of faith, science and reason through the life and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured above).
