Fr. Brendan McManus, SJ comes from a farm near Lisnaskea, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. After studying psychology and Information Technology (IT) at university, he worked in the UK’s computer industry as an interface designer with Hewlett Packard. Becoming disillusioned with the ‘yuppie’ way of life, he eventually resigned and then joined the Jesuits in Dublin in 1992.
He walked the Camino de Santiago in 2011 in memory of his brother who died by suicide. His book, “Redemption Road”, an Irish best-seller, describes the challenges and joys involved in pilgrimage as a grief process; he subsequently published a booklet “Contemplating the Camino – an Ignatian Guide”, just 64 pages long and nearly pocket sized, Brendan’s guide is inspired by one of history’s great pilgrims -Ignatius of Loyola. From packing to unpacking, and all the emotional & physical ups and downs in between, Brendan’s guide is a great resource for the pilgrim who wants to walk an intentional Camino.
