Fr. Sean Salai, SJ
The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius as Devotional

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola
With Points for Personal Prayer from Jesuit Spiritual Masters

Edited by Fr. Sean Salai, SJ

Jan. 1, 2020  - Father Sean Salai, SJ, has released a new edition of The Spiritual Exercises, the classic work of St. Ignatius Loyola. This edition is intended for readers who want to strengthen their relationship with God at their own pace. A handsome deluxe edition with leather cover and ribbon marker, the devotional is filled with quotes and prayer prompts from Jesuit spiritual masters. 

“I have written a new preface and annotation in this deluxe devotional edition of The Spiritual Exercises,” Fr. Salai said. “The prayer prompts, hardcover binding and ribbon marker make it the most accessible version of the text for self-guided prayer and reading now available on the U.S. market.” 

Though St Ignatius wrote The Spiritual Exercises as a handbook for a four-week guided retreat, this edition contains step by step explanations suitable for independent use over any time period. 

Jesuit Fathers Joseph Tetlow and Claude Pavur of this province collaborated on the project, which is available now from TAN Books or Amazon.
