Los ejercicios espirituales en la vida diaria

Since they were first developed, the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola have changed the lives of millions of men and women.  

Just as our bodies need exercise to maintain physical strength and health, St. Ignatius of Loyola felt we needed exercise in order to maintain our spiritual health as well. So, around the years 1522-1524, he composed a retreat handbook titled Spiritual Exercises. The exercises, designed to help us achieve and maintain that balance, were originally designed to take place over a 30-day silent retreat, with each of the 4 weeks (stages) focusing on a specific goal.

While St. Ignatius of Loyola initially created the Spiritual Exercises in a 30-day format he soon realized that taking a month off is not feasible for all. To make this retreat accessible to more people he adapted the Exercises into a 9-month format, called the 19th Annotation Retreat since it was the 19th note in his guide. 


La totalidad de Los ejercicios espirituales de San Ignacio de Loyola son una experiencia de retiro profundamente transformadora que toma lugar durante nueve meses. También conocido como el Retiro de las Anotaciones, los Ejercicios Espirituales en la vida diaria incluyen oración diaria y reflexión personal, dirección espiritual individual semanal con un director personal y sesiones mensuales de fe para compartir los miércoles por la noche de septiembre a junio.

What this Retreat involves:

· Daily prayer with the Bible and special Ignatian exercises for nine months.

· Weekly meetings for individual spiritual direction with one’s personal director.

· Monthly sessions on Wednesday evenings for small-group faith sharing.

Los únicos requisitos son:

• Un sincero deseo de profundizar la relación con Dios a través de la oración.

• Un compromiso de orar con la Sagrada Escritura durante 40-60 minutos diarios.

• Una entrevista de entrada con el coordinador del programa de retiro para determinar la preparación.

Cost: $1,000
