Ignatian Spirituality


Spirituality is a way
To connect with God without stray
Doesn't have to be when you pray
You who is made of divine clay
Like Ignatius O' Loyola discovered
In a hospital bed wounded and tired
Bored
With no literature he was fond of,
Had to read the available,
Like forced medication of cough

Dominic and Francis, him inspired
Torn he between seducing a woman - lusting,
And that of serving God - everlasting
Thence for the everlasting he aspired
Within himself he discerned spirits
Ignatius, like calves hop, escaped pits
Thence that self-scrutiny formed,
Yes, formed - The Examen

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
