S’orienter avec John Veltri, S.J.

Welcome!
This site offers orientations for spiritual growth. Orientations are just that: points of departure … suggestions … hints … landmarks … maps … etc., to be used or not used in as much as they are helpful for the landscape of the spirit. Like the scribe’s activity of the Gospel, this site draws from the storeroom both old things and new! (Mt 13:52)

Most of the items found here are in the Christian tradition of Ignatian spirituality, a spiritual way developed by St. Ignatius Loyola, available to Jesuits and any other person wishing to benefit from it. In an ecumenical spirit, you will find complementary elements from other traditions. The purpose is to make “spiritual tools” available to those seeking to deepen their spiritual lives by giving orientations for growth:

in personal prayer;
in understanding the spiritual journey;
in understanding the Spiritual Exercises;
in the ministry of companioning others on their spiritual journey.
These four categories are not air-tight. Do not limit your search to only one of them
