This course will present discernment as both a way of living the Christian life and of reflection on that life. Ignatius’ expert knowledge of the human person and how we relate to the spiritual life is extremely valuable to discern the movements of the spirits in our lives as we seek to walk deeper with the Lord. It will be based on St. Ignatius of Loyola’s Rules of Discernment and will be presented from spiritual, Scriptural and psychological viewpoints. The use of the Rules in spiritual direction will be taught.
