Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola

St Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises
For the next 25 days I will be continuing to take part in the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola. Therefore I will be in retreat for the most part. So please excuse my absence. One of the pre-requisites for becoming a Consecrated Marian Catechist is taking part in the 30 day Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola. It is a great grace to have this opportunity to do so. It seems in Gods Divine Providence that He would grace me with this opportunity through a physical injury and loss of employment at this time. It is not exactly the way that I would have preferred to do the exercises, but what do I know. I thank Him, and I trust in His will for me and my family. He has something planned for sure, and this is just part of that plan. Thank you Jesus for this amazing opportunity !
Please keep my family and myself in your prayers as I go through these spiritual exercises. My wife and children are very much apart of my being able to take this time to spend with our Lord. I want to thank my wife for helping to make this possible, I know it is a sacrifice. Thank you all for your prayers and patience. I promise I will be back in the next week or so with some faithful Catechesis.
ps ; one of the “creatures“ I gave up in was reading Catholic Blogs and news, and I am so glad I did.
