Brian O'Leary SJ presents the Constitutions of the Society of Jesus as an eight-day retreat.

Who This Retreat Is For

While this retreat will clearly be of benefit to Jesuits and religious whose congregations have an Ignatian charism, Brian O'Leary suggests that anyone with taste for Ignatian spirituality from their experience of the Spiritual Exercises or reading the Autobiography of Saint Ignatius will benefit from a consideration of the Constitutions. He sees that the  Constitutions show how an individual and a group can live out the graces of the Spiritual Exercises. The days of the retreat elaborate how the corporate character of the Constitutions can bring a helpful balance to our world which easily emphasises personal choice and preference.

The Days of the Retreat

A video presentation is available for each day:

  1. Our Goal and Way of Proceeding
  2. Discerning and Nurturing a Call
  3. An Apostolic Lifestyle Under Vows
  4. The Longed-for Sending
  5. Union of the Dispersed
  6. Spiritual Governance
  7. Toward the Future in Hope
  8. Gathering the Fragments

Videos introducing the retreat and reflecting on the setting of Evie Hone’s ‘Sacred Heart and Jesuit Saints’ window are also offered.


This retreat will be of most benefit to those who have the text of the Constitutions to hand. The texts can be bought or borrowed:

Scripture references are offered each day and may include links for convenience.
