What is a Colloquy?

When I first went through the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius, I stumbled when I got to the word “colloquy.”  It’s easy enough to look this up and get a definition, but that did not really clear things up for me.  Since then I have come to understand this term.  Today there was a blog posted that I really liked explaining this word.  Follow this link to this article from Kevin O’Brien, SJ, reprinted from his book, The Ignatian Adventure for a great way to understand what this prayer practice is.
