Product Overview

Our Way of Proceeding presents selections from The Constitutions of the Society of Jesus and Their Complementary Norms, arranged to accompany 17 weeks of individual reflection and prayer. It includes topics for prayer for each day of those weeks, and concludes with notes on the final contemplation of the Constitutions (“To Obtain Love”). Fr. William Barry’s goal is to help individual Jesuits “to have such an interior knowledge of our way of proceeding that we will almost instinctively act in this way.” He stresses, for example, the importance of turning to God for help in any situation before deliberating or discussing it with others. He quotes Ignatius from the Constitutions: “The Society was not instituted by human means; and neither is it through them that it can be preserved and developed, but through the omnipotent hand of Christ, God and the Lord.”
