19th Annotation


What is the 19th Annotation or RETREAT in Everyday Life.  St. Ignatius of Loyola, who created the Spiritual Exercises during the 16th century, knew even then that some people would not be able to take 30 days away from their regular responsibilities.

So he prepared an option of the 30-day retreat for those who life is busy, yet are yearning for a deeper life with God.  In this retreat, there are daily scriptures, prayer and journaling as well as meeting with a spiritual director weekly. 

The retreat covers between 32 – 34 weekly sessions, personalized to the person making the retreat.  It is an opportunity to look at God and self and how God is a part of your daily life in a deeper way.  During each direction session, your director will listen and sometimes ask a question that invites you to reflect more deeply on what you are hearing during prayer. These conversations are about the questions you bring and focus on whatever it is that you wish to discern together. Your director serves as a reflector or mirror to help you see more clearly what you are already seeing.
