Cosimo, Inc., May 1, 2007 - 132 pages
"Gathered together in this slim volume are the selected letters of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the original Jesuit. Ignatius s letters and instructions contain much of his spiritual teaching, and this collection includes 24 missives, most written to his fellow Jesuits, that address both spiritual and practical issues while revealing a warm and compassionate man with a deep reverence for humanity. In this anthology, discover Ignatius s thoughts on materialism, temptation, diligence, meditation, humility, proper penance, and much more. Learn why nearly five centuries after his death Ignatius remains a revered figure both within and without the Roman Catholic community. Spanish priest and spiritual philosopher SAINT IGNATIUS OF LOYOLA (1491 1556) has been described by Pope Benedict XVI as a man of God, a man of profound prayer, and a faithful servant of the Church. The principal founder of the Society of Jesus, Ignatius was canonized in 1622. His writings include Spiritual Exercises (1522 1524)."
