TMST 7074 Finding God in All Things: Ignatian Spirituality in Theory and Practice (Summer: 3 )


Course Description

This course has three parts. First, it explores Ignatius Loyola's context and life as sources for his spirituality and introduces his writings and key spiritual themes such as inner freedom. "contemplation in action," service of others, discernment and "finding God in all things." The course will then focus particularly on the Spiritual Exercises in contemporary context - their purpose, structure and dynamic, their teaching on prayer, discernment and choice, and their approach to spiritual guidance. Finally the course will relate Ignatian spirituality to some critical issues in Church and world: social justice, gender and sexuality, global cultures, inter-religious dialogue, the environment, the future Church.

Comments: This course meets June 26-July 13 (Monday-Thursday) from 5:45-9:00 p.m. Note: Given the brevity of these courses, it is essential that students come prepared to engage in learning the very first day. To facilitate this, each course has 'Pre-Class' work to complete. This generally includes reading and often requires a written essay to be submitted before or on the first day of class. See the summer course webpage: http://www.bc.edu/schools/stm/summer/summercourses.html for more information.
