Recommended to Chris and Yuri by: Italo Calvino
Read in January, 2005

In Six Memos from the Next Millennium, Italo Calvino discusses Loyola's Spiritual Exercises, and the specificity of the visions Loyola recommended for Christians seeking to deepen their relationship with the Almighty.

Calvino's aim wasn't (necessarily) to make converts out of his readers: what he wanted to show was the power of an inner vision, and the clarity with which Loyola was able to envision -- and encourage others to envision -- images, such as Christ on the cross.
