Excerpt from Pope Pius XI’s apostolic letter, Meditiantibus Nobis given on December 3rd, 1922:
… in the Retreat of Manresa, St. Ignatius learned from the Mother of God herself how he should fight the combats of Our Lord. It was from her hands that he received this code
so perfect, and in all truth we can so call it, of which every soldier of Jesus Christ ought to make use.
We are speaking of the Spiritual Exercises, which according to tradition, were given from Heaven to St. Ignatius.
Not that we should not esteem other spiritual exercises, but that in those organized according to the Ignatian method, everything is disposed with such wisdom, everything is so well coordinated that, if man does not oppose Divine Grace, they renew him completely. and render him fully submitted to Divine Authority.
