Living the Story

The Ignatian Way of Prayer and Scripture Reading

by Joe Cassidy

Edited and Introduced by Ann Loades

Poetry and story can tell the deepest truths about who we are as human beings. In Living the Story, Joe Cassidy explores how Ignatian spirituality can help us discover the power of story in the scriptures.

An essential tool in spiritual direction and personal prayer, Ignatian spirituality has helped readers imaginatively engage with the Bible for more than 500 years.

Joe Cassidy outlines the Ignatian method of prayer and scripture reading and offers his on beautiful reflections on Bible passages, each the result of prayerful and imaginative contemplation.

A Jesuit priest who became an Anglican, one of Joe's passions was to share the spiritual riches of his Ignatian tradition with the Church of England. He completed most of this work before his death. It has been finished by Ann Loades, who has drawn on his other unpublished writings to complete this work.

Joe Cassidy was a Jesuit priest in Canada, but moving to England to become a lecturer in ethics and spirituality, he became an Anglican and served as a priest in the Diocese of Salisbury and subsequently as Principal of St Chad's College Durham. He died in 2015. Ann Loades is Professor Emerita of Divinity at the University of Durham and a respected author.
