This brochure re-presents a small portion of Ignatian principals—those dealing with decision-making—with reference to the works of Fr. Timothy Gallagher, one of Ignatius’ best modern interpreters. It includes a brief overview of Christian decision-making, along with a guide for preparing one’s heart for the discernment process. It then offers an overview of three “modes” of discernment:
First Mode: Clarity Beyond Doubting
Second Mode: An Attraction of the Heart
Third Mode: A Preponderance of Reasons
The four-fold brochure includes advice on not making changes in times of desolation, as well as wisdom on how you will know you have arrived at a good decision. The content is not only for those discerning their vocations, but also for any Christian facing important decisions in life.
