How about a better link to the full-text version of the Exercitia Spiritualia[edit]

The article's link to the "full text" of the Exercises takes the reader to a Calvin College page that presents the document one small page per mouse click. It also contains at least one ad.

There are better, ad-free choices available. In keeping with Wikipedia's non-commercial ideals (see WP:ADS), I believe the link should be changed from:

http://www.ccel.org/ccel/ignatius/exercises.titlepage.html

to:

http://www.archive.org/details/a588350800loyouoft (where several formats are available without charge)

I'm not asking anyone to change it; I'll do that in a day or two and am inviting comment on the matter. Of course, if anyone has a better link, please say so!

Vandalism[edit]

The current version as I write this has this: " In essence Jesuits copied the retreat not based off the questionable teachings of the disabled whore mongering veteran turned bogus self proclaimed mystic, Ignatius de Loyola, but borrowed the exercises from a lifestyle born in Hellenism rather than with the mystery cult of Christianity."

This does not belong in the article. I am not sure if this is just vandalism or if someone actually thinks this is fitting content for this article. LaRoza (talk) 22:38, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
