An Ignatian Pathway : Experiencing the Mystical Dimension of the Spiritual Exercises
by Paul Coutinho




Overview -

This companion to the Spiritual Exercises helps readers enter into a more mystical experience with the Divine.

Many books written about the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola are about doing; as a result, they can easily be perceived as checklists of things that should be accomplished in order to get the greatest benefit from the Exercises. By contrast, An Ignatian Pathway by Paul Coutinho, SJ, was written specifically to help readers enter into an experience with the Divine, an approach that amplifies the easily overlooked mystical dimension of Ignatian spirituality and appropriately reflects Fr. Coutinho's Eastern background and philosophy.
In An Ignatian Pathway, Fr. Coutinho has collected 100 excerpts from the Spiritual Exercises and the Autobiography of St. Ignatius Loyola. The excerpts are culled from all four weeks of the Exercises, and each entry is followed by a short meditation written by Fr. Coutinho. Significantly, Fr. Coutinho's meditations attempt to restore a foundational insight of Ignatian spirituality: We don't find God; God finds us.
As a companion to the Spiritual Exercises, An Ignatian Pathway is ideal for anyone who has done, is currently doing, or hopes to do the Exercises, and for any "student" of Ignatian spirituality who desires a fuller, richer, more mystical experience with God.
