The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, (given by Our Lady to St. Ignatius and composed from 1522 to 1524) are a set of profound meditations, prayers and mental exercises, divided into four thematic ‘weeks’ of variable length, originally designed to be carried out over a period of 30 days. These Spiritual Exercises were adapted to a 5-day Spiritual Retreat so that people like you could make the sacrifice to follow them and sanctify your life.
These Spiritual Exercises or Ignatian Retreats have been unanimously praised by the Popes and are very transformative if followed well with a pure intention. This is why the Society of St. Pius X invests so much time, talent and energy so as to ensure these retreats are preached by Priests and are readily available to the faithful of Tradition.
May Our Lady inspire you to register for a retreat. Once you’ve done a retreat well, you will want to do another and invite those you love to follow a retreat as well.
