Welcome! We invite you to make a 'Sacred Space' in your day, praying here and now, as you visit our website, with the help of scripture chosen every day and on-screen guidance.
Ignatian spirituality, as it is often called today, is as much a school of prayer as it is an ascetical tool for the promotion of the mission of the Church. Ignatius was an extraordinary reader of the human soul, concerned with how we are forever struggling to order and reconcile desires and longings of all kinds... Like all Jesuits, and all who share in the Ignatian approach to Christian living, St Francis Xavier and Pope Francis are companions of Jesus - not just communicators of the truth revealed in Christ, but also observers of the work the Spirit of Christ is already doing in the world.
