Spring 2020 - Discernment

26 August 2020


The air that we breathe

In spring we deepen our association with the element of air, and of wind, and its invitation to open ourselves to a God who flows in directions that we cannot predict.

Think hard, live well

Thinking – really thinking – requires commitment, but the rewards are there for those who are prepared to put in the hard work.

My perfect compass

Discerning the better path requires nuance and skill. St Ignatius, through his teaching on discernment, offers us a way to develop the necessary skills.

A school of discernment

Learning discernment is learning to live with a basic sense of peace. The good spirit brings peace, while the evil spirit disturbs.
