The Ignatian Way by Although many books have been written on Ignatian pirituality, most focus on highly specific and scholarly details, rendering them too academic and specialized for the average reader. This book remedies this problem by compiling a more general guide to the basic aspects of Ignatian spirituality. Addressing everything from the life of St. Ignatius Loyola to his Spiritual Exercises to dealing with contemporary world issues in a Jesuit spirit, it offers a comprehensive yet conversational approach to Ignatian spirituality. Whether studying or teaching at a Jesuit school, seeking spiritual direction on a retreat, discerning a possible vocation to the Society of Jesus, or simply seeking more exposure to Ignatian spirituality, this book is an invaluable guide. +

O God, who made Saint Peter Claver
a slave of slaves and strengthened him
with wonderful charity and patience
as he came to their help, grant,
through his intercession, that,
seeking the things of Jesus Christ,
we may love our neighbour
in deeds and in truth.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
your Son, who lives and reigns
with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
(from The Roman Missal)
