Spiritual Exercises and Diversity

In the contemplation on the Incarnation, we are invited to see ‘those on the face of the earth in such great diversity of dress and in manner of acting,’ and then hear God say, ‘Let us work the redemption of the human race.’

  • What does it mean to ‘be able to see’ diversity?  
  • What does it mean to be part of ‘working the redemption of the human race’, particularly in our experience through accompanying people on the way to God through the Spiritual Exercises?

We will reflect on our own experiences, of diversity in general and of accompanying retreatants who are in some way ‘diverse’.
