Call in the Spiritual Exercises

An Ignatian Prayer Adventure online retreat

This post is based on Week Five of An Ignatian Prayer Adventure.

Fr. Kevin O’Brien, SJ, explains that the image of call is important in the Second Week of the Spiritual Exercises:

In different meditations we reflect on the call of Jesus. We reflect on the call of the disciples, which we can do by using our imagination, by putting ourselves there with Peter and the disciples as Jesus interacts with them. We imagine what that must have been like, but then, ultimately, hopefully, we are led to considering, “Wow! How does Jesus call me?”
