Jesuit Father James Kubicki Explains Ignatian Spirituality and the Apostleship of Prayer in Latest Issue of New Jesuit Review

In the latest issue of New Jesuit Review, Jesuit Father James Kubicki explains Ignatian spirituality and the Apostleship of Prayer. He writes:
Saint Ignatius Loyola was not a monk who withdrew from the world in order to find God. Rather, he marked out a path by which active priests, religious, and lay people would find God in the midst of the world. Two phrases capture the essence of his approach: to find God in all things and to be a contemplative in action. The Apostleship of Prayer, by helping people become “apostles of prayer,” follows the same path. We strive to find God in the middle of our every day lives.This ideal has been part of the Apostleship of Prayer from its beginning.
