Encounter Jesus in the tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola in this simplified presentation of his Spiritual Exercises. Enter into the scenes from the Exercises, first from the text, and then by following other suggested mediations. Examine the key elements of St. Ignatius' teachings, including "Discernment of Spirits," "Rules for Thinking with the Church," and "Rules for Eating." From start to finish, the Exercises are a training ground in freedom, because they are a training ground in love. Focusing on the person of Jesus, the Exercises invite you to enter into the relationship with God that Jesus has. We need to retreat--to turn aside for a while--to let our hearts and souls and senses be healed and ready for a deeper entry into the things of God. Above all, a retreat is about prayer. About the author: Father Raymond Gawronski, a member of the Society of Jesus for more than twenty-five years, teaches at Marquete University, Milwaukee. His television program, "The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ingnatius," can be seen on EWTN.
