What Are Spiritual Exercises?
The Spiritual Exercises are an opportunity to retreat from the hectic, noisy world and encounter Jesus Christ in a more profound and personal way.
We offer silent retreats for men and women that focus on the Gospels and the fullness of the Catholic faith, opening the soul to the transforming power of grace. Preached by Legionary of Christ priests, each retreat is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola and is comprised of guided meditations, private reflection, Mass, opportunities for confession and spiritual direction.
These retreats can help anyone to focus on important aspects of growth in the spiritual life, such as deeper self-knowledge, discernment of God’s will, and finding a way to follow Christ more closely.
This format is worth the investment! You will have a hard time settling for anything less once you have experienced the intimacy and familiarity with God that comes from 6 days devoted to speaking and listening to Him. OLB always brings in expert preachers from around the country for this special retreat.
