John Staudenmaier, S.J.

John Staudenmaier, S.J., UDM's assistant to the president for Mission and Identity, presented this talk as part of a special series on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola.  Some ideas discussed include:

Americans are, for the most part, better at strategy (planning, then executing the plan, then assessing success or failure) than at intimacy (grieving, rejoicing, savoring beauty, resting when tired). There's good and bad in that for sure.

No planning and no sense of urgency lead to gradually dying. But no intimacy wears out the inner spirit, which is the source of an adult's energy for living. The Spiritual Exercise teaches a method of prayer in which I learn to be present to the griefs of my life and the joys of my life.

It stems back to Ignatius' dictum, "I will stay there (at some place of grief or joy) until I have been satisfied." The Spiritual Exercise understands all true strategies, our purposeful commitments, as flowing from our intimate experiences of God and God's love for the world. This may be the most helpful single rule of prayer in the Spiritual Exercise for adult citizens of contemporary U.S. society.

John Staudenmaier, S.J.

John Staudenmaier, S.J., UDM's assistant to the president for Mission and Identity, presented this talk as part of his series on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. In this talk, Fr. Staudenmaier reflects on the following ideas:

How, through my adult life, do I decide when to stick with the commitments I already have and when to change some of those commitments?

Adults make such changes all the time: taking a new job, leaving our home and buying another, getting married, choosing a new career, driving up north for the weekend instead of staying home, pausing in the mid-morning's work to get a cup of coffee… large and small changes of one's present set of commitments; humans do this a lot.

But adults also stick with commitments a lot: we will stay in our home at this address; we will stay married even though it is hard; I will stick with my career; I will keep working on this task (and not go out for a cup of coffee now). The Spiritual Exercise teaches a method for discerning when to stick and when to change, about small and large matters.
