The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola (Eastern Philosophy and Religion)

The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola (Eastern Philosophy and Religion) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this unique handbook of Christian literature, the founder of the Jesuits offers a way of "raising the mind and heart to God." Saint Ignatius of Loyola avoids setting a formula for prayer, providing readers with an extensive variety of meditative themes. Although originally intended for those making a retreat under the direction of an experienced master, the spiritual exercises have since become much more widely known and used, and they offer an excellent resource for private devotions.

Synopsis:

Rather than a set formula for prayer, the founder of the Jesuits offers a way of "raising the mind and heart to God," providing a great variety of themes for meditation.
