Can someone confirm that St. Nikodemos translated Loyola's Spiritual Exercises? I know that he published a book called that, but do not know where the author of the article is getting his source information.

I'll just add that it's a shame that the article is so short on Orthodox Wiki when even wikipedia has much more useful and accurate information about this saint and father of the Church.
