Sacred Space is inspired by the spirituality of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, a sixteenth-century Basque, whose insights into God’s working with the human heart have been of great assistance to countless people over the centuries and are found more helpful than ever today.

Sacred Space is a joint apostolate of the Irish Province of the Society of Jesus – the Jesuits, and Loyola Press. The site originated in the offices of the Jesuit Communication Centre in Ireland in 1999.
