In the topic of Ignatius’ spiritual journey, Joe guided us through the Diary of Saint Ignatius. In reading this personal document of Saint Ignatius, we can the deepest heart of Saint Ignatius and the atmosphere when Ignatius was writing Constitution. There are five keys, used to read Saint Ignatius spiritual diary: Trinitarian mysticism, Eucharistic mysticism, multiplicity of gifts, mysticism of service, and mysticism with consolation.

Then in the second session, Joe showed a video of Father O’Keefe. O’Keefe shared his personal experience living with Arrupe. We have three topics on Arrupe: humble Jesuit, finding God in the people’s life, and living uncertainty.
