An Ignatian Spirituality Reader Oct 30, 2008
This is a collection of writings by Jesuits and edited by George Traub S.J. The focus is on discernment, which is the key to self knowledge and relationship with God. It is easy to read, and most satisfying, straightforward in style, and deeply motivating. I love the book and will continue to read it over and over. Pat Krommer CSJ
Readable and Just Right Oct 23, 2008
This book came my way at a good time--and the essays are just the right length for those tidbits of time that are available here and there--ten, fifteen minutes that you want to fill with something good to reflect on.
The book is a collection of extraordinarily well written pieces that I had not come across before. I'm grateful to the editor for putting them together in one volume! Reading through, a few pages at a time, I was reminded that the essence of Ignatian spirituality--finding God in all things--is a fruit of mindfulness, and one of the things Ignatius invites us to be "mindful" of are the inner "movements" that flit through our heart as the day goes on. I have been too focused of late on outward things--so distracted in looking for these that I lost the awareness that God, who lives in the "interior castle" of my being, is communicating from that throne all the time. His comuniques take a form that would seem to be just a mood or a reaction; it takes discernment to recognize which really are moods and which are messages! We owe a lot to St. Ignatius: how much good his spiritual insights can do for people today!
