Jesuit Communications is proud to present three new books to help us
prepare for the Lenten season: two works on the Spiritual Exercises and
one concerning the life and thoughts of Pope John Paul II.
 
Tim Muldoon's THE IGNATIAN WORKOUT uses the metaphor of physical
exercise to introduce readers to spiritual exercise-more precisely, the
Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Muldoon helps those who
wish to improve their spiritual fitness enter into the regimen of Saint
Ignatius, who was all too aware of the fatigue and sloth that burden the
soul. THE IGNATIAN WORKOUT is accessible not only to those who have had
long experience with the Spiritual Exercises, but also to those just
beginning to discover the health of their spirits. As a theologian and
spiritual director, Muldoon explains the movements of a spiritual
workout and prepares the reader for the pitfalls and traps that all
workouts are prone to. Written in straightforward and even humorous
language, THE IGNATIAN WORKOUT helps those who need a spiritual boost
find the equipment necessary to begin.
 
 
For the more experienced retreatants and directors, David Fleming, SJ
has written DRAW ME INTO YOUR FRIENDSHIP, a translation and a
contemporary reading of the Spiritual Exercises. Having been a
theologian and a spiritual director for many years, Fleming draws upon
the wealth of his experience to help people enter into the mystery and
wonder of Christ's friendship. Fleming presents a careful literal
translation of the original Spanish text with a contemporary reading on
the facing page, explaining passages and helping the reader understand
the work necessary for that particular stage of the exercises. In the
spirit of Ignatius, Fleming's text is not a book to be read but rather,
an exercise to be done and experienced in all its difficulty and
consolation.
 
 
 
Who is John Paul II? What passions drive him? What bothers him and what
gives him peace? Joseph Durepos tries to answer these questions by going
straight to the man himself, editing and compiling the speeches and
prayers most faithful to the person that is John Paul II. The result is
a work of remarkable potency: GO IN PEACE: A GIFT OF ENDURING LOVE.
Culling from apostolic letters and speeches, gathering prayers and
reflections of this philosopher and theologian, Durepos assembles a
selection of texts gathered around themes most important to John Paul
II. From prayer to morality to the Eucharist, Durepos gives us a
portrait of the man, using the very words that he himself uses, helping
us understand what drives this extraordinary servant, inspiring us to
serve as he does. GO IN PEACE is a legacy of a life well-lived, telling
the story of a man who is many things, but a servant first of all.
Through his words, thoughts and life, we glimpse not just the servant,
but the Master whom he serves as well.
 
THE IGNATIAN WORKOUT, DRAW ME INTO YOUR FRIENDSHIP and GO IN PEACE are
