The Ignatian Way is connected with the thousand-year-old tradition of making pilgrimages. In 1521 Ignatius of Loyola decided to change his life, and to do that he became a pil- grim, setting out for Jerusalem. Ignatius the pilgrim lived radically: seeking reconciliation, with austerity, on foot, being open to interior transformation and a deep encounter with God. Ignatius was a pilgrim of his time, and today in this work we join with the pilgrims of all times on this new route. In the castle of the Loyola family was a young Ignatius with his body badly wounded from war, but his heart ardent, hoping to recuperate and to remake his life. That is where it all began: What should I do now? What is the true path to happiness? Should I pursue a future in the King's court? Ignatius had reached a crisis. Sixteenth-century questions that we have today as well. This book was written as a guide to offer Ignatius' experience to modern pilgrims. In it the pilgrim will find accounts by various modern pilgrims and guidance by which to plan and to have your own spiritually transforming experience, following the lead of the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises. Every pilgrim can use these instructions freely and create your own way, since, as Ignatius tells us, the most fundamental thing is to come into contact with our inner source of light and happiness, our Creator who seeks also to encounter his Creation. The testimonies collected here help us to understand the Ignatius Way as an interior way of healing, conversion and freedom.

Addressing everything from the life of St. Ignatius Loyola to his Spiritual Exercises to methods of dealing with contemporary world issues in a Jesuit spirit, it offers a comprehensive yet conversational approach to Ignatian spirituality. Whether readers are 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.

While the textual focus of this collection of essays is the Spiritual Exercise of Ignatius of Loyola, the essays are much more than textual analyses; they deal with the tradition and institutions associated with Ignatian spirituality, with historical and philosophical perspectives on Ignatian spirituality, with the contemporary search for spiritual life. In addition, the question of the relationship of the contemporary believer to past events is addressed, as well as the question of the relationship between spirituality and ministry. The strong and effective combination of historical and contemporary concerns, as well as of textual and spiritual concerns, results in a volume of importance to students of religious history and of spirituality. The analysis of the Exercises and the discussion of spiritual direction will also be of great value to ministers and pastors—and to all those pursuing "spiritual life in a secular age."

The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, are deeply rooted in the era of great classics such as “Golden Era” by Jacobus de Volragine O.P., “Meditations on the Life of Christ”, by Pseudo- Bonaventure and the “Life of Christ” by Ludolph of Saxony. It would appear that this last work gave the basic foundation for much of the exercises' layout & format, but it would a work, entitled “The Book of Exercises for the Spiritual Life" (Ejercitatorio de la Vida Espiritial) of Garcia de Cisneros, (a future work in the “Contemplative Series”, that gives both the final formulary, outlook & style. Denis the Carthusian, is believed “He is probably the unacknowledged source of much Jesuit Theology.” In this endeavor to present a thorough work, we have presented the most authentic and direct translation of these “Spiritual Exercises” combined with a superb commentary on this work. To-date there is nothing quite like this work, which you are about to embark upon.

The Ignatian tradition sprang up in the sixteenth century, the fruit of graces bestowed on a Basque nobleman, Ignatius of Loyola. Guided by a passion to find God in all things, Ignatius and his first companions founded the Society of Jesus and inspired many other religious orders and lay movements. Their influence spread across the globe even as they embraced various aspects of the cultures, languages, and institutions they encountered. This introduction is a mere sampling of the men and women influenced by Ignatius 'draws on the stories and writings of nineteen exemplary individuals as well as the corporate voice of the Jesuit order. Here we meet missionaries, scholars, artists, advocates, and martyrs. Contemplatives in action, they follow Christ by serving others. They embody the freedom born of a passionate knowledge of God's unending, unconditional love; precisely in this, they show us how to live well today. Eileen Burke-Sullivan, PhD, is a theologian, spiritual director, liturgist, and musician. She currently teaches at Creighton University where she also directs the Master of Arts in Ministry program. A well-known lecturer, she has served as a lay ecclesial minister in both parish and diocesan settings, and as a national and international leader in the Ignatian-inspired Christian Life Community movement. Kevin F. Burke, SJ, is a theologian, poet, and younger brother of Dr. Burke-Sullivan. He currently serves as the acting president and academic dean of the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley. He recently edited Pedro Arrupe: Essential Writings and coedited (with Robert Lassalle-Klein) Love that Produces Hope, a collection of essays on the thought of the Jesuit theologian and martyr, Ignacio Ellacura­a.

What is discernment? Who was Peter Faber? Why do the Jesuits exude such optimism? Awareness. Emotions. Love. Work. We use such words every day in normal conversation, but those same words take on special meaning when used in the context of Ignatian spirituality. Other words and phrases, such as finding God in all things, are distinctly associated with the Ignatian approach to spiritual development. Acquiring a general grasp of these terms will prove invaluable to those who desire a better understanding of the Jesuit / Ignatian way of life. With Ignatian Spirituality A to Z, Jim Manney has provided a brief, informative, and entertaining guide to key concepts of Ignatian spirituality and essential characters and events in Jesuit history. The lexicon format allows readers to find terms quickly, and the concise descriptions are ideal for those new to the Ignatian story. From Pedro Arrupe to Francis Xavier, from Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam to Zeal, this book uncovers the rich language of the Jesuits. It will be an indispensable tool to anyone interested in Ignatian spirituality, to staff, faculty, and students at Jesuit institutions and schools, and to clergy and spiritual directors who advise others about prayer and spiritual matters.

This book is a revision and condensation of a doctoral dissertation which its author wrote under the direction of the well-known Father Karl Rahner at the University of Münster. It focuses on the importance of St. Ignatius’ small book, the Spiritual Exercises, as a source of theological investigation. Thus it stems from Rahner’s own “conviction,” as he states in his foreword, “that the real theological (and not only the spiritual) significance of Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises . . . presents a non-yet accomplished task to today’s theology.” Absorbing, synthesizing, and completing past studies on the Exercises, Father Egan summarizes the finding of modern scholars such as Przwara, Fessard, Karl Rahner, Hugo Rahner, Marxer, Cusson, Gil, Bakker, and Gonzalez de Mendoza—all hitherto relatively unavailable in English—and then presents his own fresh viewpoint. His quest is for Ignatius’ mystical horizon, “the lived internal unity, . . . the roots of all of Ignatius’ experiences, knowledge, and love.” Applying the contemporary methodology in theology to the study of the Ignatian Exercises, the author offers a penetrating and comprehensive treatment of Ignatius’ “consolation without previous cause,” of the “Three Times of Election,” including intellectual and affective discernment, the trinitarian dimensions of the Exercises, and other important Ignatian themes. The book is scholarly and extensively documented and seems to be the most comprehensive and up to date theological commentary in English on the Exercises. One experienced critic has called it “one of the greatest contributions to the present commentary on the Exercises.”

This volume places Loyola’s life, his writings, and spirituality in a broader context of important late medieval and early modern movements and processes that have been appreciated too little by historians who explored Ignatius more as the colossal icon of the so-called Counterreformation than as a man influenced by the dramatic and revolutionary period in which he lived.
