JesuitPrayer is your one-stop shop for Ignatian Spirituality on the go. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. In collaboration with the Magis Center for Catholic Spirituality and Loyola Press, JesuitPrayer offers daily scripture, Ignatian reflections, and prayer to anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.

Points toward God
Uncomplicated interface, doesn’t try to do too much in the app, introduces Ignatian spirituality, avoids political polemic or ideology (except the pope’s often radicalized speech bytes), there are daily inspiration archives that go back at least as far as 2016, prayers are direct and simple without being simplistic, and the app when it shines points toward Jesus and God who deliver us all.
I would like to see two things: a modernization of Ignatian Exercises that yet preserves its stringency, and a resurrection of older prayers and litanies in the our vernacular (for example the Litany of Humility).
It's magnificent. The app has all the right simple elements to bring you back to it daily...twice! The reflections are superb and the daily examen are right on the spot, both when you feel at your worst in mid day and when you really need to focus back on God in your nightly prayers, besides Compline. I have suggested this app to a Youth and another Elder and both agree that the spiritual direction daily from this app is beautiful. I highly recommend it as part of your daily routine.
It is a wonderful app
This app helps me to focus my day and to remember to put Jesus in the center of it. It encourages me keep trying and not give up on being a follower of Christ because there are others out there just like me stumbling about. I went to a Jesuit high school and am grateful for the start in Christian life they gave me. It is really a good feeling having them still helping me.
