The Field

Cultivating Salvation

The Collected Works of St. Ignatius Brianchaninov - Volume I

     The field is a place of cultivation and of battle. In this volume, the nineteenth century Christian saint and teacher Ignatius instructs his readers in the cultivation of the field of their hearts, with the aim of producing a harvest of virtues both pleasing to God and of benefit to all humankind. Drawing on his own military background, St. Ignatius recognizes that this cultivation requires discipline and awareness of the enemies that thwart our efforts to live a holy life. His words combine spiritual wisdom with reflections on nature that hint at the joy awaiting those who embrace the saint's call.
