If you’ve spent much time reading about Ignatian spirituality, there’s a good chance you’ve come across the work of Jim Manney. He has a great book on the Examen called “A Simple, Life-Changing Prayer” that often serves as introduction for many to this all-important part of Ignatian spirituality.

Jim has this way of boiling down his vast — and it is vast! — array of Ignatian knowledge in a way that is accessible, powerful and practical. His writing stays with you.

And so, his newest book, which essentially is an exercise in making Ignatian spirituality accessible and practical, is pretty exciting. It’s called “What Matters Most and Why: Living the Spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola.” In the book are 365 daily reflections—each less than a page.

Jim is today’s guest, and he walks us through his own life story, how he became so enamored with the spirituality of Ignatius, how he goes about sharing it with others and why he thinks it’s important to do so.
