The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola are a program of meditations, prayers, considerations, and contemplative practices that help Christian faith become more fully alive in the everyday life of contemporary people. They are a way for everyone to seek and find God in their workplaces, homes, families, and community.
The Spiritual Exercises (SE) were written by St Ignatius of Loyola during the 1530’s. He was very clear to state that the SE could be adapted to whatever situation, allowing “more” people to experience them. In particular, this version has been adapted to offer the SE to those with full-time jobs, busy families, and/or others who cannot afford the length of time of the 19th Annotation Retreat in Daily Life (30 weeks, meeting once a week with a spiritual director) or the 30 Day Away Retreat.
The SE 8-Week Format (meets once a week for 1.5 hours): This version contains all the topics that are part of the Original (all 4 IGNATIAN WEEKS) without compromising its integrity. The consolidation and new structure is achieved by the selection of each topic without the “repetition” that is part of the Original Version. It includes scripture as well as commentary by various Jesuit sources, giving it a fresh, updated view and richer in its diversity of thought.
