Meditation and Contemplation – An Ignatian Guide to Prayer with Scripture

Author: Timothy M. Gallagher OMV

Binding: Paperback

Pagination: 112pp

Publisher: Crossroad


Bestselling author Fr. Timothy Gallagher makes St. Ignatius of Loyola’s method come alive in this accessible resource.
Through the examples of those under Gallagher’s spiritual direction we come to understand that the reflective practice of meditation and the imaginative process of contemplation can change the way we see the world.
The struggles of the individuals who share their experiences draw Ignatius’s principles into living color. Each person finds a personal connection to the scripture story and gleans wisdom and perspective from the movements of spirit that occur through the process. Gallagher also reveals some of the lesser-known Ignatian structures, such as the preparatory steps and colloquy, and shows how applicable Ignatius’s methods are to us today.
The book’s practical approach makes it a valuable aid for anyone who prays with scripture. It is also a useful reference for spiritual directors, retreat leaders, and reading groups.
