The enduring legacy of Saint Ignatius Loyola is that he experienced the passing of God in his everyday life, and showed the way for others to discern this passage and live accordingly. This extraordinary understanding of the possibility of a truly personal relationship with God is a beacon of hope for the ordinary person who, not drawn to a contemplative commitment, still longs to be caught up in the love that is promised as the meaning and dynamism of Christian existence. Moreover, it affirms unequivocally the value of the secular, not as that to be defined negatively against what is apparently sacred, but as the locus of God’s care and concern, and the sphere of God’s activity. In 1956, Karl Rahner argued that the Spiritual Exercises were deserving of greater theological consideration, and it is my view that this is still the case, not least in terms of the theological recontextualization of revelation for today.
