In my 3,200-word review essay "Pope Francis' 2013 Book of Spiritual Exercises, and Walter J. Ong's Thought," I highlight the short 135-page July 2013 book In Him Alone Is Our Hope: Spiritual Exercises Given to His Brother Bishops [of Spain] in the Manner of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, edited by Romain Lize; translated by Vincent Capuano, S.J., and Andrew Matt (New York, Paris, Madrid, Oxford: Magnificat). On the book's title page, the author is identified as Jorge Mario Bergoglio/ Pope Francis, because then-Cardinal Bergoglio preached the retreat for the bishops of Spain before he was elected pope in March 2013. In addition, I highlight the thought of the American Jesuit Renaissance specialist and cultural historian Walter J. Ong (1912-2003; Ph.D. in English, Harvard University, 1955). I also briefly discuss the Victorian Jesuit classicist and poet Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889).
