A cannonball moment with Ignatian prayer

Spiritual Director Siobhan Murphy shares her ‘cannonball’ moment when she attended a prayer workshop for parents of Belvedere College students some years ago. She refers to the practice of Ignatian contemplation which involves imagining a Gospel scene while paying attention to senses and feelings. Later, she made a serious commitment to her faith which she continues to honour today.

The ‘cannonball’ video series is a global Jesuit initiative to commemorate the 500th anniversary when Saint Ignatius of Loyola was struck by a cannonball in Pamplona on 20 May 1521. Click on the link above to watch the video ».
