The Art of Discernment
Anxiety, uncertainty, vulnerability—anyone who has made a big decision knows these feelings. And as the complexity of our decisions grows we constantly seek guidance in dealing with life's endless possibilities. Stefan Kiechle offers a clear explanation of the discernment process first developed by St. Ignatius of Loyola and refined by his followers in the centuries since. This holistic process involves rationally outlining the pros and the cons of a possibility, imaginatively considering what it would be like to live with the decision, listening to the inner movements of our hearts, and prayerfully seeking the inner freedom to do what is best.
