ALL CHRISTIANS ARE ON A JOURNEY, a journey in faith and into faith. The Spiritual Exercise of St Ignatius Loyola describe the stages people go through along the way of this journey.
Experienced spiritual director, retreat giver and writer, Fr Patrick O'Sullivan, describes these stages in an appealing. enlightening and light-hearted way. He shows how we approach the fostering of our relationship with God, looks at the shadows that cloud that relationship - sin - and how we move out of the shadows into light. At the heart of the approach is the truly human figure of Jesus, and the way we live out his Paschal Mystery in our lives. A final reflection on renowned fellow-Jesuit Pedro Arrupe is a tribute to one who has now completed the journey and whose life can show us the way.
Fr O'Sullivan's particular interest in the psychology of the person makes his reflections immediate and easily accessible to those who see spiritual growth as part of the general growth to maturity.
This is a book of practical, down-to-earth spirituality. readers will find in it nourishment and encouragement as they make their pilgrimage towards the Kingdom.
