One woman's personal account of Saint Ignatius' "Spiritual Exercises" in her own prayer life. "This book is the result of an improbable friendship," she admits from the outset, "Mine with St. Ignatius Loyola." The book grew out of a 30-day retreat the author took away from her busy life as awife, theology student in pastoral education, translator and mother of two little boys. "Yet nothing had prepared me for the experience. I had thought this would be a nice project for Lent. Lent began and ended, but the project went on, and radically changed my way of seeing things. In a sense Inever finished them. They have become a part of me, the meditations being a kind of horizon against which I can see and reflect upon the course of my life, and to which I return again and again."
