“Instead of seeing the spiritual life as one that can exist only if it is enclosed by the walls of a monastery, Ignatius asks you to see the world as your monastery.”

–James Martin, SJ

I cannot overstate what a positive impact this book has had on my spiritual life. It's fresh take on things I had almost gotten too familiar with helped me gain an appreciation and a craving for practices I never fully understood in the past.

Jesuit practices caught my attention when I learned of Ignatius' intention of experiencing God in all things. While I've never been a close follower of Catholicism, I started to gain a deep appreciation for the faith and its Jesuit expression through what I read.
