He declared indeed that though filled with [Pg 32]the liveliest abhorrence of his past sins, he could not assure himself that they were forgiven; yet in his austerities so intense was his desire to do great things for Christ that he did not think of his sins. When he recalled the penances practised by holy persons, his whole mind was bent on doing something to equal and even surpass them. In this holy ambition he found his consolation, for he had no interior motive for his penances, knowing as yet very little about humility or charity or patience, for to obtain these many holy men have led austere lives. He knew still less the value of discretion, which regulates the practice of these virtues. To do something great for the glory of his God, to emulate saintly men in all that they had done before him—this was the only object of Ignatius in his practices of external mortification.

Четко и по делу написано, по солдатски так, иезуитская харизма сразу ощущается. Скорее очерк напоминает по стилю.

Una parte della vita di Sant'Ignazio dettata da lui stesso a un confraterno.
In un italiano diverso rispetto a quello che conosciamo noi e con un racconto veloce, ma che vuole illustrare la santità di Ignazio e il suo contatto con il Divino. Si concentra soprattutto sugli anni spagnoli, parigini e de

I didn’t initially know when I started reading this what I expected or wanted to get out of it. I’m a Roman Catholic, so I thought it would be interesting to read about one of the greatest saints. (He is included in the canon of the mass, so he must be great, right?

Interesting narrative from St Ignatius with historical commentary alongside. I actually really enjoyed reading this as a relatively non-religious person

Una mirada a la vida de este gran santo. Me llama particularmente la atención el contexto de época, y la participación del Santo Oficio en cada una de las investigaciones que le hicieron. Asimismo habla de sus dolencias estomacales constantes, que yo me aventuro a sugerir que posiblemente tenía sínd

“Hoya Saxa.” -St. Ignatius

I love Ignatius and the autobiographical account of his life is interesting but this book doesn’t seem to capture the depth, grandeur or mysticism of the Saint. This is largely a dictation of events and times remembered by Ignatius where the writer is convincing Ignatius to retell what he remembers.
