Hearts on Fire: Praying with Jesuits

"Love consists in sharing
what one has
and what one is
with those one loves.
Love ought to show itself in deeds
more than in words."

St. Ignatius of Loyola

Discover the rich tradition of Ignatian prayer in Hearts on Fire, compiled by Michael Harter, SJ. Hundreds of Ignatian prayers are included here, many written by the most illustrious Jesuits—Ignatius Loyola, Francis Xavier, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Anthony de Mello, Karl Rahner, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and others. Each gives eloquent voice to Ignatian spirituality, which affirms that God is present in all things and at all times. Thus, this collection includes Ignatian prayers for all occasions, including the most familiar and seemingly mundane.
