The Ignatian Way

The Ignatian Camino or the Ignatian Way is an exciting, new pilgrim journey. With the blessing of the Society of Jesus, a small group of men and women, lay and Jesuit, have re-created a pilgrim route commemorating the famous 1522 journey made by Ignatius of Loyola from his home in Spain’s Basque country to Montserrat and Manresa.

Pilgrims are like treasure hunters, driven by the hunger for discovery. But the pilgrim seeks internal treasures: forgiveness or reconciliation, a new direction or course in life, confirmation of a major life choice, or a renewed or rediscovered sense of personal identity.

The Camino Ignaciano begins at the birthplace of Ignatius Loyola in Spain’s Basque country, in a village near the small town of Azpeitia. From there, the route proceeds for hundreds of kilometers, through picturesque mountains, deserts, and verdant plains, before ending in the town of Manresa (near Barcelona); Ignatius rested in this town for some months after his journey through Spain, and Manresa was a place of profound spiritual enlightenment for him. Here he composed the essence of his spiritual masterpiece, the Spiritual Exercises.

Pilgrims along the Camino Ignaciano walk virtually the same route that Ignatius did, pass through many towns that he did, pray at churches where he worshipped, and marvel at the same natural wonders that he saw.

In just four years, Spain will be celebrating the 500th Anniversary of when St. Ignatius walked this path.

Fr. Jose Luis Iriberri, SJ

Jose Luis Iriberri SJ is a Spanish Jesuit priest, biologist, theologian and a veteran pilgrim who was commissioned to create the Ignatian Camino in Spain in 2011. He is on the faculty of Ramon Llull University in Barcelona and an author of many books on Ignatian Spirituality. He co-authored, with Chris Lowney, the official “Guide to the Ignatian Camino” (http://caminoignaciano.org/en/oficina-peregrino/noticias/official-guide-translated-english) and “On the Ignatian Way” (https://www.ignatius.com/On-the-Ignatian-Way-P1263.aspx).

In preparation for the celebrations planned in Spain of the 500th Anniversary of when St. Ignatius walked this path and to help get the word out on this fairly new Camino, Father Jose will be in Miami from November 2-5 as part of a promotional tour that will also take him to Philadelphia, New York, Boston and DC.
