For a Theology of the Discernment of Spirits

 The Spiritual Exercises (SE) are St. Ignatius’ kerygmatic legacy, his “Gospel.” The practice of the Exercises – in various modes suited to the needs of each exercitant, always respecting the integrity of the steps involved in the process – is ordered to the choice of one’s state of life or its reform. Therefore, at the heart of the thematic structure of the Exercises is a set of norms and practices that are an essential part of the kerygma.
