Charged with Grandeur

Charged with Grandeur

The Book of Ignatian Inspiration


Gerard Manley Hopkins, SJ, famously wrote that “the world is charged with the grandeur of God.” This quote, from which Charged with Grandeur takes its name, points toward a key principle of the Ignatian tradition: that God is found in all things, in all places.

Yet this is just one of an abundance of inspirational ideas that stem from Ignatian spirituality. To really understand what this unique yet highly practical spirituality is all about, it helps to look at it through many different lenses and to hear about it from many different voices.

Charged with Grandeur, edited by Jim Manney, contains 365 insightful and inspiring Ignatian thoughts from dozens of writers, including James Martin, SJ; Margaret Silf; Maureen Conroy; and David L. Fleming, SJ. The entries are grouped under 12 different Ignatian themes that cover the gamut of the Ignatian tradition.

Rather than throwing readers into the deep water, the daily-reading format of Charged with Grandeur allows readers to simply dip their toes into the rich heritage that is Ignatian spirituality, and to do so within the context of reflection and prayer.
