The Spiritual Exercises
How They Helped Me Discover Myself and God Over 40 Years
by Rev. Tom Donohue

Contrary to what some may say, God is the farthest thing from fiction. Through a loving relationship to God, we find meaning and discern how best to live. Through his insights as a retired priest, Rev. Tom Donohue offers guidance on how to deepen one’s connection to God through Ignatius’s Spiritual Exercises. Chronicling his own personal journey towards priesthood, Rev. Tom Donohue offers a wise understanding of how to approach the Spiritual Exercises, interpretations of Ignatius’s guidance, and variations for the four-week journey. Enriched with insights from the field of psychology and applications for the twelve-step Alcoholics Anonymous program, The Spiritual Exercises is a guide to meditation and spiritual growth.
