Product Description

From the day Paul Mariani arrives at Eastern Point Retreat House to take part in the five-hundred-year-old Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, he realizes that his expectations and assumptions about who he is, what he knows, and what he believes are about to change radically. In this profound memoir Mariani blends a brief life of St. Ignatius and meditations on the life of Jesus with the day-to-day unfolding of thirty days of silence at a Jesuit retreat house.

His journey of unflinching introspection, self-revelation, and spiritual renewal leads him to a new understanding of his relationship with God and of what it truly means to put others before oneself. Rich in history, humor, and spiritual insight, this is the story of one man's emptying of himself until he has found his true self in the silence of God. Softcover, 285 pages. Penguin Compass.
