“Inner Compass is lucidly written, down-to-earth, free of jargon, and full of hope and encouragement. Ignatius wrote his Exercises as a way of helping us to see and find the will of God. Finding the will of God can sometimes feel, in the author’s words, “like playing darts on an invisible board.” In this book she helps us to find the will of God within our own hearts, a will that is never directed to only our individual benefit, but always to the well-being of all peoples and of all creation."
—Gerard W. Hughes, Cry of Justice
