Ignatian Wisdom – Christine Valters Paintner

January 15, 2019

“One of the great elements of wisdom we have inherited from St. Ignatius of Loyola, that sixteenth-century Spanish soldier-turned-mystic, is the fundamental belief that our deepest desires have been planted there by God. Sounds simple, right? We just follow those deep desires, and we follow our call in the world. Except that, as human beings, we seem to have all kinds of ingrained mechanisms to get in our own way.”
