Intrinsic to human development is the invitation and challenge of religious faith. Not surprisingly, the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit Order, mirrors this growth. Fr. Schner shows how “The Exercises” can serve as a school of love which initiates, strengthens, and reforms faith development.
