Frank and Iggy

Although I am influenced by of many Catholic religious orders, there are 2 that are very dear to my heart: the Jesuits and the Franciscans. I went to a Jesuit college, where my ideologies were challenged, shaken, and brought to life. Then, I spent a year in a volunteer corps along side the Franciscans in Syracuse, and understood what it meant to live simply and live in service of others.

That’s why I think this is just a super cool resource! Francis is known for his radical love of nature (I sometimes wonder if he was the first hippie), and Ignatius of Loyola is known for his prayer model called the Examen of Conscience.

What a beautiful merger of Franciscan and Ignatian spirituality:the Ecological Examen.

Reflect away!
