Did You Know?

In addition to the retreats and programs offered by our Spiritual Growth staff, the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth welcomes Catholic and other ecumenical groups who are looking for a beautiful setting to conduct their own group meetings.

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,

my memory, my understanding

and my entire will,

All I have and call my own.

You have given all to me.

To you, Lord, I return it.

Everything is yours; do with it what you will.

Give me only your love and your grace,

That is enough for me.

—St. Ignatius of Loyola

“This is what is meant by the famous Ignatian motto ‘finding God in all things.’  ‘All things’ to Ignatius is the whole panoply of human drama—our relationships, our work, our strivings and failures, our hopes and dreams.  God can be found in all of it.”  

– David L. Fleming, SJ, What Is Ignatian Spirituality?
