Welcome, Gemma Simmonds CJ, to the Laity Podcast! Super grateful to have Gemma on the show to discuss Ignatian Spirituality, alongside her recent book release, The Way of Ignatius: A Prayer Journey Through Lent. While it's now Easter season, this book/episode is highly relevant for anyone interested in the Jesuit tradition, contemplative prayer, St. Ignatius of Loyola - not just during Lent!
Gemma is a sister of the Congregation of Jesus - a Jesuit religious order of sisters founded by Mary Ward in 1609. She is also an author, speaker, and teacher of Ignatian spirituality, based in the UK. Read Gemma's bio here.
We really enjoyed this conversation and think you will too.
