Join Loyola Press for an evening of gratitude, hope, and expanding horizons of mind and heart!

Moses proclaimed to the pharaoh, “Let my people go!” Centuries later, the apostle Paul encouraged the Christians in Galatia: “For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” The message of our faith urges liberation on every level; God desires our freedom. In The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, the aim is to become free of attachments that prevent our spiritual growth. The ongoing process of freedom happens through simple practices, and those practices increase our capacity to love and serve God and others.
