Do You Speak Ignatian? - 20th Anniversary Edition

A Glossary of Ignatian and Jesuit Terms



This expanded and updated mini-dictionary defines many of the terms used in conversations in Ignatian and Jesuit circles with 10 new entries and dozens of updates. More than 95,000 copies of Do You Speak Ignatian? have been distributed around the world. $3.25 each


The glossary has provided a useful reference for introducing people to Ignatian jargon. I think simply having the publication lets people know that there IS a jargon, and that they don't have to feel as though they should know it. The material is presented simply and in an organized manner.

We give Do You Speak Ignatian? to all new tenure-track faculty during orientation. Several years ago, one new faculty member told me that of all the handouts and other materials she received during orientation, this was the one she saved and continued to refer to. This year, we distributed Do You Speak Ignatian? to new student affairs professionals. I plan to continue this in the future.

The book is VERY helpful for new staff and proves to be a great way to remind existing staff of the concepts behind the terms we use every day.
