St. Ignatius of Loyola created his Spiritual Exercises for people seeking a closer relationship to the Triune God, and deeper commitment to discipleship of Jesus Christ. Based on the final week of the Ignatian Exercises, this day will focus primarily on the Risen Christ’s call to love as God loves. Through input, an environment of quiet, the practice of contemplative prayer, and small group sharing, you will be invited to encounter the Risen Christ in your own life and respond to God’s call to love as Jesus loved.
