Editor’s note: Tim Muldoon, theologian, professor, and Ignatian author, is being honored with the Writer’s Award in Spirituality from the Loyola Institute for Spirituality. His newest book is Living Against the Grain: How to Make Decisions That Lead to an Authentic Life. Today we look back at a video from 2013, in which Muldoon explains why Ignatian spirituality is appealing for young people.Why is Ignatian spirituality appropriate for young people and seekers? It’s a spirituality that invites taking a moment to ask the deep questions: What am I living for? What am I hoping to get out of life? Do I have a purpose?
And then Ignatian spirituality gives us practices to help us get better asking and answering those deeper questions.
In re the description of Mr. Muldoon’s residence: DOESN’T JUST ABOUT EVERYONE IN THE U.S. LIVE “WEST OF BOSTON”?
Brother, you got me. I actually live in Seattle.
There is dynamism in young people. Ignatius and his spiritual exercises inspire young people to dream big and do things great. AMDG.
Tim, great video! I am going to share this with the young adult retreat team I am working with for a Charis Retreat today. I could not agree with you more about why IS is so appealing to young adults.
Thanks, Becky. Tell them I’ll be praying for them!
