“The heart of the Jesuit ethos is Ignatian Spirituality –
the way of Christian growth developed by St Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits.”

A new inventory (finding-aid) is available online for the archives of the Apostleship of Prayer (now the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network) held in ARSI (Jesuit Archives Rome). In 2019, the Apostleship of Prayer celebrates 175 years since its foundation in 1844. Therefore, it is opportune to revisit the roots of the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network. The guide includes the founding documents of this enduring apostolate in which Jesuits have been involved from the beginning.

In addition, the regional directors' correspondence from across the Catholic world shows how this apostolate developed in various countries. The Eucharistic Congresses also feature.
