Teach Me Thy Paths
A Lay Retreat. Based Upon The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.
By rev. James P. Monaghan, S.J.
“Just as to walk or to run are designated as bodily exercises, so corresponding endeavors of the soul are termed spiritual exercises. These comprise all methods of awakening the powers of the soul and of making it eager to rid itself of all wrongly directed attachments or desires. Thus purified, the soul is disposed to search for and is enabled to learn the will of God in the planning of life for the soul’s salvation.” This quotation from the beginning of the book gives a clear insight into what the aims of this book are, and how all can benefit from it.
