These clear and practical rules offer assistance in understanding the times of joy and of struggle in the spiritual life.

Generations of those who love Christ have found clarity and encouragement through St. Ignatius’s rules as they live their daily lives. Fr.

In this set of thirteen conferences, shown on EWTN, Fr. Gallagher explains St. Ignatius of Loyola’s daily examen prayer and his teaching on meditation and contemplation—how to pray with Scripture. The daily examen prayer has helped many to find God in the busyness of daily life, and so learn to follow his daily leading. St. Ignatius’s clear and profound teaching on how to reflect prayerfully on Scripture (meditation) and how to pray with the Gospels with the aid of the imagination (contemplation), has blessed generations of those who love the Lord. Fr. Gallagher’s presentation renders these forms of prayer accessible to all.

The Discernment of Spirits: St. Ignatius of Loyola's Guide for the Spiritual Life (8 CDs)

In these conferences, Fr. Gallagher explains Saint Ignatius of Loyola's teaching on how to overcome the great obstacle in the life of faith for many: spiritual desolation. In his First Rules for discernment, Saint Ignatius helps us understand spiritual desolation - those times when we lose energy for spiritual things - and offers a wealth of practical counsel on how to resist its pitfalls. This teaching offers a message of great hope: that a path out of bondage to spiritual desolation and into spiritual consolation lies open before us all.


Examen Prayer

The Examen Prayer: Finding God in the Busyness of Daily Life (8 CDs)

In these conferences, Fr. Gallagher explains Saint Ignatius of Loyola's teaching on how to find God in the many occupations of each day. The examen prayer, a simple and profound way of praying, helps us to follow God's leading more closely in the midst of busy lives. Fr. Gallagher explains the nature of this prayer, its steps (gratitude, petition, review, forgiveness, and renewal), and the conditions which help us to grow in this practice. This clear and practical teaching is for all who desire growth in the spiritual life.


Spiritual Consolation

Spiritual Consolation: St. Ignatius of Loyola's Guide for the Greater Discernment of Spirits (8 CDs)

In these conferences, Fr. Gallagher explains Saint Ignatius's teaching on how to discern when the attractions we experience in spiritual consolation - when our hearts feel the love of God - are truly of God. In his Second Rules for discernment, Saint Ignatius helps us understand when such spiritual consolation is of God and when it may be deceptive. Clearly, much in the spiritual life depends upon accurate discernment at such times. Fr. Gallagher's thoughtful and practical conferences render Saint Ignatius's teaching accessible to those who face such sensitive discernment.
