At one point or another, most of us have ruminated on the ultimate meaning of our lives. We may ask questions such as What is this life all about? What is my purpose, and how might I come to realize it? and What does my prayer and reception of the sacraments really do for me?

In this illuminating audio series, Fr. David Meconi, S.J., award-winning professor of historical theology at Saint Louis University and director of the Catholic Studies Centre, helps listeners answer such questions in seven soul-searching conferences.

Drawing from the spiritually edifying wisdom found in St. Ignatius of Loyola’s 500-year-old Spiritual Exercises, Fr. Meconi shows you how to apply St. Ignatius’ tools to your life today, assisting your pilgrimage to the final goal of becoming holy. Areas of focus include Ignatius’ famed Principle and Foundation, the nature of sin, and the purpose of God’s incarnation in Jesus.

Praise for Fr. David Vincent Meconi, S.J., D.Phil.

“The brilliant Augustine scholar Fr. David Meconi is well-known for his boundless energy in teaching, preaching, and writing… His personal love for the Trinity shines forth in his scholarship, and now it is available through Now You Know Media. Everyone who can’t take his courses at Saint Louis University needs this lecture series.” – Matthew Levering, Mundelein Seminary
“Fr. Meconi, SJ, gives witness to a rare and refreshing combination of scholarly insight and priestly compassion. An accomplished scholar and professor of theology, he reflects a life committed to the care of souls and the building of the body of Christ.” – Christopher Thompson, Ph.D., The Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity
“Fr. David Meconi, S.J., is a priest with the mind of a scholar and the heart of a pastor, equally comfortable with plumbing the depths of Augustinian theology with students as he is with conveying the riches of Catholic spirituality to popular audiences.” – Carl E. Olson, best-selling author and Editor of Catholic World Report
“[Fr. Meconi’s] love of the topic gets translated into a passion to communicate the beauty of the truth of our Faith. I suspect that the listener will catch his passion for truth and grow spiritually as it instructs the interior of the soul.” – Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J.
