St. Benedict Press LLC
Is it time to take your spiritual pulse, re-orient yourself to your Creator, and seek His guidance to live your faith more seriously? The Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola outline the rigorous self-examination and spiritual meditations St Ignatius set forth. Readers will learn how to make a new beginning on the path to holiness, repenting of their sins and attaining freedom from Satan's power. Though St Ignatius wrote The Spiritual Exercises as a handbook for a four week guided retreat, this edition contains step by step explanations suitable for independent use over any time period. This is a complete revision of the original TAN edition now with updated typesetting, fresh new cover, new size and quality binding, newly annotated quotations from Jesuit spiritual masters with self-guided journal exercises, a full restoration of the translation to improve readability, a fresh historical preface, and the same trusted content. As the only English-language edition of the Exercises currently available in hardcover with a ribbon on the market, this reverent updating makes the perfect gift idea for all admirers of Ignatius Loyola, the soldier-saint.
