The Spiritual Writings of Pierre Favre: The Memoriale and Selected Letters and Instructions

Pierre Favre was the first companion of Ignatius of Loyola, and Ignatius considered him the best director of the Spiritual Exercises. Favre has left us the legacy of his spiritual autobiography (traditionally called the Memoriale), and a series of letters and instructions. These are translated here, and accompanied by an extended introduction which places Favreís life and work in its historical setting. The text presented here is the first English edition of Favreís works, drawn from the critical edition published in the Monumenta Historica Societatis Iesu.

A spiritual autobiography is a record of Godís dealings with an individual, and of that personís response to God. Favreís Memoriale is very much a book of this kind: God is at the centre of Favreís activities, the one who takes the initiative and shows Favre which path to follow. Favre records the graces of God and his response to them; his prayer is always a dialogue, with the trinitarian God or with the angels, or with the saints, or even with himself as he strives to understand the experiences he is undergoing.

The twenty-seven letters and instructions translated here were written to a variety of recipients, on a range of topics, between 1540 and 1546. At this time Favre was engaged in journeys all over Europe, travelling thousands of miles on mission. He wrote to St Ignatius himself, as well as to Jesuit scholastics in Paris, the Carthusian prior in Cologne, Francis Xavier in India, and King John III of Portugal.
