Book description
FROM THE BACK COVER:

Basing his interpretation of St. Ignatius's Exercises chiefly on the biblical experience of salvation (St.Paul's "mystery of Christ"), Gilles Cusson draws richly from the most important early and modern commentators on Ignatius's text, compares their varying opinions, and aids readers to form their own view.

Part I presents Ignatius's own experience of God's working out His plan of salvation, and the saint's expression of that experience in his book, the Exercises. Part II shows how retreatants, guided by the Exercises while cooperating with God's grace, can come to a similar experience of Him as achieving His plan within themselves.

The spiritual riches which the book reveals in the Exercises far exceed those which an individual is likely to absorb in one retreat. Thus the book can repeatedly help to bring further enrichments into one's spiritual life.

Giles Cusson was for many years professor at the Gregorian University in Rome and Director of the Jesuit tertianship in Quebec. In addition to serving as retreat director for both religious and laity, he has also conducted numerous courses and study sessions on the Exercises in America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. He is the founder of the Centre de Spiritualite lgnatienne in Quebec, and the founding editor of the quarterly Cahiers de Spiritualite lgnatienne. The Institute of Jesuit Sources also published his book The Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life.
