The Spiritual Exercises

of St. Ignatius

A  Retreat in Daily Life  

A 9-Month Journey in Praying through the Life of Christ 

19th or 18th Annotation 

The Desire

To know Christ more clearly

To love Christ  more dearly

To follow Christ more nearly

day by day

"Rooted within the spiritual tradition in the Church, The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius have been universally considered one of the great masterpieces of ascetical theology by the Church.

 

 It’s a complete guide and framework for growing in Christian perfection, which grew out of St. Ignatius' own experiences and in helping souls to find God in all things, to discover God's dreams, desires, and will for each person."Bishop Barron

 

Through this journey, one comes to deeper, heartfelt, intimate knowledge of God’s revealed Self in Jesus Christ as we respond in gratitude giving more glory to God in joyous servicing as a contemplative in action.

Jesus proclaimed, "I am the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6) and Our Lady pointed the way.  Ignatius modeled the Spiritual Exercises after the faith of Mary, for her 'yes' was the grace given through the Holy Spirit, for she pondered the Word of God (Luke 2:19).

"Come and See"

Retreat

An  Ignatian Way of the Encounter 

 

A 10-Week  Invitational Journey  to deepening  your relationship with God through Prayer and Reflection

“Come and See” is a retreat for those who desire to grow in their personal relationship with God. Here in this retreat, one comes to experience the workings of a discerning soul in seeking, listening, noticing, reflecting, desiring, and responding to the reality that all is gift and grace from God, who is forever present and active in every moment. 

Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said, “Rabbi”, “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”

(John1:38-39)

 

This 10-week encounter also serves as an introduction to Ignatian Spirituality and the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

 

This is offered throughout the year. Retreatants will be introduced to and have links on how to pray using the methods, teachings, and wisdom of St. Ignatius taken from his Spiritual Exercises.

   

We look forward to accompanying you along the way.

 

Yours in Christ through Mary, Blessings!
