7 Spiritual Life Hacks - Ancient Wisdom for Daily Life
Learn how the timeless wisdom of St. Ignatius can help you navigate modern life.At one point or another, most of us have ruminated on the ultimate meaning of our lives. We may ask questions such as What is this life all about? What is my purpose, and how might I come to realize it? and What does my prayer and reception of the sacraments really do for me?In this illuminating audio series, Fr. David Meconi, S.J., award-winning professor of historical theology at Saint Louis University and director of the Catholic Studies Centre, helps listeners answer such questions in seven soul-searching conferences. Drawing from the spiritually edifying wisdom found in St. Ignatius of Loyola’s 500-year-old Spiritual Exercises, Fr. Meconi shows you how to apply St. Ignatius’ tools to your life today, assisting your pilgrimage to the final goal of becoming holy. Areas of focus include Ignatius’ famed Principle and Foundation, the nature of sin, and the purpose of God’s incarnation in Jesus. The great Jesuit theologian Karl Rahner, S.J. once prophesied that “The Christian of the future will be a mystic, or he or she will not be at all.” The world is loud, our days are stressful, the anxiety can often be overwhelming. To combat the chaos both inside and outside of our souls, we need solid theology and practical tips. These conferences aim to provide both: a foundation for approaching the scriptures and the saints with confidence and a guide for how to put this ancient wisdom into practice today.This course is part of the Learn25 collection.
