The Ignatian Workout: Daily Spiritual Exercises

The Ignatian Workout

Daily Spiritual Exercises for a Healthy Faith


“The Ignatian Workout is a valuable contribution to contemporary writing on Ignatian spirituality. Muldoon does a fine job of illustrating just how relevant this spirituality is for today’s young adults.”
--J. Michael Sparough, S.J., Director of Charis Ministries Ignatian Spirituality for Young Adults

We all know the importance of physical exercise, but what about the spiritual exercises—those exercises that keep us fit spiritually? The Ignatian Workout promotes the importance of achieving spiritual fitness and presents a dynamic program of “workouts” based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

Designed for reading, reflection, and prayer, the book includes a brief history of St. Ignatius and an overview of the Spiritual Exercises. Based on a 4-week program originally designed as a 30-day retreat, each week focuses on a different element of the mystery of the Christian faith. This unique guide to spiritual well-being concludes with a list of resources and Web sites for continued study.
