Brian O’Leary SJ, Radical and Free—Musings on the Religious Life

(Image of Book)
This book is the result of two preached retreats given to mark the recent Year of Consecrated Life (2015). However, the origin of the material goes much further back, drawing on Fr O’ Leary’s teaching experience both at Manresa Centre of Spirituality and at Milltown Institute (covering a period of thirty years). In both places held taught courses on religious life—its history, theology, and most of all its underlying spirituality. Indeed, he has always used history and theology (and other disciplines such as psychology and anthropology) in service of exploring and renewing the spirituality of religious life.

After an initial chapter on the origins of religious life, the author devotes two chapters each to poverty, chastity, and obedience. This emphasis is not on the vows as such (dealing with questions that Canon Law might raise) but on the motivating values that the vows express. Only these values can explain why people enter and flourish in religious life. All religious, without distinction, are called to be ’radical and free‘.

Walking with Ignatius is a celebration of 500 years of the Society of Jesus, as seen through the eyes of its first Latin American Father General, Arturo Sosa SJ. Comprised of interviews with Father General by journalist, Darío Menor, they engage in a spiritual conversation that covers such topics as the life of Ignatius, the life story of Sosa, the challenge of the unsettling twenty-first century, and the future of the Church. The book is published as part of the celebrations of ‘Ignatius 500’ : the 500th anniversary of the transformation in the life of Ignatius of Loyola that resulted in his conversion and led to the foundation of the Jesuit order.

Paul O‘Reilly SJ, Hope in All Things

(Image of Book)
The reflections in Hope in All Things are based on the Ignatian insight that in prayer and life we can ‘find God in all things’. Through these pieces, Fr Paul shows us how to find hope in all the experiences of joy and sorrow, thanks and petition, and in all of life.

Drawing on vast pastoral experience in Britain and Guyana, this inspiring collection of gospel reflections takes very interesting incidents from the author’s life, which speak to the hunger for hope in today’s culture. His work as a medical doctor in his clinic for the homeless provides the backdrop for the book.

… inspirational anecdotes and memories to encourage and enlighten those attempting to live an authentic Christian life … told with a sense of warmth and compassion as well as an engaging humility and sense of humour … this little treasury offers nourishing daily spiritual bread.' Intercom
