Title
Ignatian Spirituality in the Work of Morton Kelsey
Abstract

Morton Kelsey, an Episcopal priest who has written numerous books on the subject of spirituality, often integrates the insights of depth psychology and the traditional teachings of Christian masters in the devotional life. This article examines Kelsey'€™s references to the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola and considers them in light of the four personality functions-€”sensing, intuiting, thinking, feeling-€”postulated by Jung. It is suggested that Kelsey'€™s appreciation of Ignatius may be due to the fact that the Spiritual Exercises are founded on traditional elements of spirituality and they incorporate practices which draw on all four Jungian functions.
