Embark on the spiritual adventure of a lifetime—with St. Ignatius Loyola as your guide!
There are many ways to experience the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, each way known as an annotation. In The Ignatian Adventure, Kevin O’Brien, SJ, offers his own adaptation of the widely used 19th annotation, which allows people to “make” the Exercises over an extended period of time in the course of their daily lives.
The first part of O’Brien’s book provides helpful background information, including a brief history of St. Ignatius, an explanation of the Spiritual Exercises and their purpose, and a description of different ways to make the Exercises. The book’s core offers 32 weeks of prayer and meditations, the ultimate intent of which is to draw participants into a deeper encounter with God.
But what truly sets this book apart from other 19th annotations is how O’Brien, the executive director of campus ministry at Georgetown University, has woven throughout the chapters his own personal accounts of living out the Exercises in everyday life. Through O’Brien’s deeply moving stories, readers discover how the Exercises intersect with the real world.
The Ignatian Adventure is an ideal resource for spiritual directors, but its user-friendly, down-to-earth style also makes it perfect for any individual seeking a better understanding of Ignatian spirituality or a deeper life of prayer.
Highly recommend to anyone who is looking to deepen their spiritual journey.
Aside from establishing the Jesuits, St. Ignatius' greatest spiritual contribution are his famous Spiritual Exercises.
If you want an aid on your spiritual journey towards a more intimate relationship with God, this is the book.
