St. Ignatius of Loyola Spiritual Awareness Bracelet
This bracelet is a tool for self-examination that deepens our consciousness of God’s movements in our lives. 500 years ago, St. Ignatius of Loyola was inspired by the Holy Spirit to create a guide for all to fall deeper in love with God and to feel His love in a real and tangible way. St. Ignatius called it a Spiritual Awakening and created a 5-step daily exercise as a part of this awakening. Wear this bracelet as a reminder to practice this spiritual exercise daily — in the morning and in the evening. Begin each day with the five beads next to the gold St. Benedict Medal, and as you pray each of the daily steps of the Examen, move a bead to the silver St. Benedict Medal. In the evening, as you pray each step, move the beads back to the gold St. Benedict Medal. Repeat each day. It is perfectly ok if you forget along the way. Begin wherever you are.
