Ignatius Loyola: Accompanied, Companion and in Companionship with Others

Publication date: 
November 2021

Through the writings and the life of St. Ignatius, we will see to what extent the dimensions of accompanying, being accompanied and in companionship with others are fundamental to the process of maturation in our faith, to the pilgrimage of our hope and to the strengthening of our love. So therefore, they are dimensions to keep present before us and to cultivate, not only in our personal lives, but also in the groups and ecclesial communities of which we form a part. They figure as such precisely at a time when narcissism and self-sufficiency are leading us to an individualism from which we seem not to have a way out.
