As Jesus Christ is the center of the life and work of Ignatius Loyola, so is the Christologic dimension the center of Ignatius' spirituality. This is witnessed by his writings in which he gives divine appellations to Jesus Christ and thus recognizes him as the embodiment of God. According to Ignatius, Jesus Christ is "the Creator who became man" who by the cross and resurrection became the "Redeemer". Ignatius experienced Jesus Christ as the son of the Heavenly Father who accepts him in His service. Jesus is Ignatius' guide to the Holy Trinity.
Ignatius particulariy emphasizes the charismatic aspects of Jesus Christ. In his mysticism, Ignatius experiences Jesus primarily as an "Intermediary" to the Father. He is his "Leader".
Finally, Jesus Christ is the "Head of the Society". Thus, the Christocentricity so obvious in Ignatius' writings is also evident in practical spirituality. Since Jesus Christ is the beginning and end of all history, only "He" is worth "serving". Christ is nevertheless concretely "served" in the service of His Church and Pope as His regent on earth.
