God in All Things (7:33 min)

God can be found in all things, although it is sometimes hard to see Him in the midst of our busy, often troubled lives. Jesuit priests and laypersons talk about seeking—and finding—God in their lives. Produced by Paul Hanley, Pacifica-Sunset A.M.D.G., Pacifica, Calif. Used by permission of Paul Hanley.



Discernment of Spirits (5:15 min)

Discernment of spirits is the process of trying to listen and discriminate to how God is calling us. Jesuit priests and laypersons talk about discerning God’s will in the midst of the decisions we make. Produced by Paul Hanley, Pacifica-Sunset A.M.D.G., Pacifica, Calif. Used by permission of Paul Hanley.



Magis (5:15 min)

Jesuits and laypersons discuss the concept of magis which means “the more” in Latin. By seeking the magis, we ask ourselves how we can do things better in a healthy, qualitative way rather than in a compulsive or addictive way. Produced by Paul Hanley, Pacifica-Sunset A.M.D.G., Pacifica, Calif. Used by permission of Paul Hanley.

The Examen (5:57 min)

The Examen of Consciousness is a spiritual practice developed by St. Ignatius Loyola which can help you grow more sensitive to your own spirit and its source. Here, Jesuits and laypersons discuss their practice of the Examen. Produced by Paul Hanley, Pacifica-Sunset A.M.D.G., Pacifica, Calif. Used by permission of Paul Hanley. (After watching the video, listen to an audio podcast of a guided Examen led by Father Peter Filice, S.J., by clicking here)
