Ignatian Spirituality Community - Geneva

Tantur Livestream Lecures with Jared Goldfarb

Join us on a journey through early rabbinic teachings and the Synoptic Gospels to understand the radical transformation of Jewish practice following the destruction of the Temple and the birth of early Christianity. Our focus: key sites and structures serving as an important backdrop to this historical period—the first synagogues, the fishing villages along the Sea of Galilee, the Jewish-Roman city of Tzippori (Sephoris), Qumran, and the complex fabric of politics, religion and identity in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus.

On May 20, 2021, the Society of Jesus and the Ignatian family will begin the worldwide celebration of the Ignatian Year. On that day, 500 years ago, St Ignatius was wounded by a cannonball while defending Pamplona. For him, it was a major failure and a change of plans in what he envisioned for his future, full of riches and worldly exploits. However, this failure started a process of conversion, which led Ignatius to have bigger dreams, no longer centered on himself, but rather on God. It helped St. Ignatius to see all things new in Christ.

How might we grow in our relationship with God and our love for one another by meditating on this important moment in Ignatius’ life?

God continues to invite each of us into a deepening relationship, to ongoing conversion. We believe that by embracing this invitation, we embrace our God who calls us to act in new, bold ways that reconcile our world, bringing about justice, peace and compassion.

For this Ignatian Year, we ask for the grace to see all things new in Christ.

“The Exercises have as their purpose the conquest of self and the regulation of one’s life in such a way that no decision is made under the influence of any inordinate attachment.” St Ignatius Loyola

The Spiritual Exercises grew out of Ignatius Loyola’s personal experience seeking to grow closer to God and to discern God’s will. Ignatius gather his own spiritual insights and experience as well as what “worked” when he started guiding other people into a retreat framework, which he called “spiritual exercises.” Want to find out more about The Spiritual Exercises?
