Drawing on the wisdom of Pope Francis and the spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, austen Ivereigh has written a captivating spiritual guide for our turbulent age.

Designed as an eight-day Ignatian retreat, First Belong to God serves as a roadmap to deeper discipleship. It does this by focusing on the three foundational forms of belonging: to God, to creation, and to others.

Whether you're embarking on a solitary spiritual expedition or a journey with like-minded individuals, First Belong to God offers the next best thing to a personal retreat with Pope Francis: a full-soul immersion into his wisdom via the classic Jesuit retreat that shaped him profoundly.

Austen Ivereigh

An Ignatian layman who has done the eight-day Exercises for many years, Dr Ivereigh is Fellow in Contemporary Church History at the Jesuit-run Campion Hall in the University of Oxford, and has been involved at different levels in the synod on synodality. First Belong to God is based on a retreat he gave to the British Province of the Jesuits in 2020.  Ivereigh is the author of two renowned biographies of Pope Francis: The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope (Henry Holt / Picador 2014/15) and Wounded Shepherd: Francis and his Struggle to Convert the Catholic Church (Henry Holt, 2019). He also collaborated with Pope Francis on his vision for the post-Covid world, the New York Times bestseller Let Us Dream: the Path to a Better Future (Simon & Schuster).
