The play, by Jonathan Moore, vividly brings Ignatius and the founding Jesuits to life for a contemporary audience is available in English and Spanish. It would be ideal for use as a text for study, campus ministry, evangelisation, spirituality, and/or to be dramatised by students.
It is a loving, lively, relevant and often funny portrayal of the saint. The British, Irish and Spanish Jesuits have already ordered the books for use in schools and colleges.
“As the river (Cardoner) tumbled and rolled and sparkled I breathed in… the – stuff of life. The deep core of… meaning. I was looking out at the world and in at my interior landscape with new eyes. I was… let in on the secret of it all. I am – not just in my attire – or my outward mask… or my childish dreams of being the best… but a new man. With a new mind. A new man. For others. And everything…everythingʼs changed.
See? I knew I wouldnʼt be able to put it into words properly.”

“Jonathan Moore makes Ignatius accessible to us, capturing much of the drama of the Spiritual Exercises themselves, an excellent discovery for schools and colleges. I hope that is something we may look forward to.”
