The specific source of CLC Spirituality is the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. The Spiritual Exercises can be experienced as a retreat and as a whole way of living in the world. The influence of the Spiritual Exercises is seen in our way of life; daily practice of personal prayer especially that based on Scripture, and discernment by means of a daily review of one's life (the Examen).
Our spirituality is centred on Christ and draws from the Sacred Scriptures; the liturgy, the doctrinal development of the Church and the revelation of God's will through the events of our times
CLC does not have a rule book but a set of General Principles which provide flexible and inspiring guidance.
