Ignatian spirituality awakens and nurtures a sacramental belief in a continuing creation in which we all participate. This sensibility sees the grey concrete walkway of life beautified by beds of purple jacaranda petals. Feeling infused with and immersed in life spirit provokes alternate bouts of joyful hubris and jocund humility. In the best case, Ignatian spirituality inspires one to be more open to the world and others, and to do more, individually and in community, all the while keeping matters in perspective and not taking things personally – including the universe.
