From the Publisher

The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, are deeply rooted in the era of great classics such as “Golden Era” by Jacobus de Volragine O.P., “Meditations on the Life of Christ”, by Pseudo- Bonaventure and the “Life of Christ” by Ludolph of Saxony. It would appear that this last work gave the basic foundation for much of the exercises' layout & format, but it would a work, entitled “The Book of Exercises for the Spiritual Life" (Ejercitatorio de la Vida Espiritial) of Garcia de Cisneros, (a future work in the “Contemplative Series”, that gives both the final formulary, outlook & style.

Brother Ali Spits Divine Flows On 'Never Learn'

Brother Ali is a prophet, plain and simple.

They start to internalize that not as news but as the norm.

How did America get to this place of such divi
