Saint Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556), founder of the Society of Jesus.
Ignatius of Loyola wrote his Spiritual Exercises as a result of his own experience of searching for God's will for his life.As a consequence, he invites people wanting to respond to God's callto do these “exercises” rather than justreading them.
Paul VI: “The practice of the Exercises constitutes not only an invigorating pause for our spirits in the midst of all the noise of modern life, which reinforces our search for God's will. Even more today, it constitutes an irreplaceable school for leading our souls to a greater intimacy with God, to the love of goodness and to a true vision of life as a gift from God and a response to His call.”
