In The Gift of Ignatius of Loyola, Jesuit Tom O’Hara traces the story of Ignatius’ life. His search for spirituality and a new understanding of the mysteries of faith, his movement from personal asceticism to a close involvement with like-minded spiritual persons and his founding of the Jesuit Order. Fr O’Hara provides clear insights into Ignatius’ legacy of the Spiritual Exercises and the Society’s missionary role today.

‘The joy of his faithful followers must bring a smile to the face of Ignatius as he notices that his unique combination of head and heart has indeed been a gift to all.’ - Tom O'Hara

Fr O'Hara has run retreats in the Spiritual Exercises at the Canisius Centre of Ignatian Spirituality in Pymble, and is the author of 'At Home with God: Prayer from the Beginnings' and 'At Home with the Spirit: On Retreat in Daily Life'.
