Don’t make any changes to your intended spiritual practice — such as going to confession, or attending daily Mass or making a planned retreat or reading Scripture — “when you’re in the discouragement of spiritual desolation. That’s [St. Ignatius of Loyola’s Discernment of Spirits] classic Rule Five. I wish everybody in the Church knew that rule. I can’t tell you how grateful in my own life I am for that rule; how many bad decisions I have not made because of Rule Five. People love it,” said Fr. Timothy M. Gallagher, O.M.V., author of “When You Struggle in the Spiritual Life: An Ignatian Path to Freedom” (Sophia Institute Press) and other books. Follow him at FrTimothyGallagher.org.
