It was in a cave in Manresa, Spain, where Saint Ignatius composed the Spiritual Exercises. In this time of seclusion, he came to know God in a profoundly intimate way. In our time of seclusion and transitions, we too, can find God in a deeper, more profound way.

Over the 12 weeks of Manresa: Spiritual Exercises for our Times, you are invited to an Ignatian retreat in daily life inspired by and rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. This retreat is intended for both those experienced and new to the Spiritual Exercises who seek "some instruction and the attainment of a certain degree of peace of soul."
