This is an off-beat book containing Community Prayer Services based on the early parts of the Autobiography of Saint Ignatius, related to his ‘conversion’. The undergirding theme is: ‘Through Ignatius to Christ’. Each unit has four I’s (eye’s’!): Invocation, Ignatiana, Insights, Intercessions. The thought-provoking and challenging reflections and prayers are drawn from wide-ranging sources. There are four sections: (a) Dynamics of conversion; (b) “On the road to Manresa”; (c) Pathways to God (UAP); (d) Special features: Our Lady of the Way, Saint Francis Xavier, Vocation Promotion.
Pascual Cebollada SJ, the Coordinator of the Ignatian Year in Rome, was requested to appraise the manuscript. His response: “I shared your wonderful initiative with the committee of the Ignatian Year… We underline the simplicity and easy understanding of the texts, their deepness, and other things…” John Dardis SJ, General Counsellor for Discernment and Apostolic Planning, Director of the Communications Office, added: “… and the prayers which you so thoughtfully brought together. … You have made an amazing integration of the Ignatian sources; of the different comments of successive Father Generals; of comments on Ignatius and on the First Companions.” The book has global appeal, and hopefully will have translations/adaptations in several foreign languages.
