The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola
Author:Saint Ignatius of Loyola, Thomas Corbishley, S. J.
Retail Price:$7.95

Contents:Click to View
Dimensions:5 x 8
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.
Reprint of the P. J. Kennedy & Sons, New York, 1963 edition.
