Rules for Eating in Everyday Life
(Adapted from the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius)

August 22, 2015 at The West Virginia Institute for Spirituality

Although Ignatius Loyola lived from 1491-1556, the “Rules for Eating,” contained within the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius, are as timely today as they were then.

“The Rules for Eating” help set the tone and quality of life…They suggest a simple attitude about eating with a daily consistent discipline.” according to George J. Schemel, S. J. in collaboration with Judith A. Roemer in the book entitled Beyond Individuation to Discipleship.

“Every time we take a drink, or have a meal, every time we sit with friends or betrayers, every time we speak or keep silent, every time we look on another, can be a fostering of our union with God--these are the very actions mentioned explicitly in the Rules for Eating.” David Townsend
