In these seminars on the exercises of St. Ignatius, Karl Rahner got closer to our time the richness and intensity of Ignatian meditation:
"Time of the twentieth century is a time other than historical density. And it is what we live: change time period and thus also new way of Christian life. [...] We must be aware that the domain of our life requires ever new impulse, and that rests on the edge of our goodwill [...]. Meditating this in some depth, we will check the relevance of the exercises to the individual situation of each one of us [...]. Exercises are not a theological system. Theologically considered are but one choice: the choice of means and concrete way of making Christianity living reality among us. Only this matters to St. Ignatius. "
