Every praying of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius involves an intensely personal encounter between the individual and God. As such the Exercises encourage silent listening to "the still, small voice" of God within offering personal guidance and encouragement on the road to transformation in Christ. All this happens within a specific structure wherein God speaks again and again to the soul, meeting that soul at its individual stage of spiritual growth and providing what is personally needed at this time for ever greater spiritual maturity. It is clear, therefore, that every praying of the Spiritual Exercises is a unique experience that not only reveals something of the unfathomable mystery of God but also affords an important degree of self-knowledge as we grow in wisdom and love. This work leads the reader through the process.
