Spiritual Exercises in everyday life
The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola are a creative
and flexible programme of prayer and reflection centred on the
life of Christ.
The method for this retreat in daily life is described in the opening paragraphs of the Exercises, note number 19 – so it is often referred to as a “19th Annotation” retreat
Making the Spiritual Exercises according to
the 19th annotation can help people to integrate
prayer, life and work in a very direct way.
People from very different backgrounds or
Christian traditions have found benefit in making the Spiritual
The person making the Exercises commits to
pray and reflect for a certain amount of time each day and meet
regularly with the retreat guide.
People often begin making the Exercises in Daily Life in the
autumn, as this usually fits in best with the liturgical year.
An interview will then be arranged.
Please note: participation in the Spiritual
Exercises in Daily Life usually requires regular meetings in
Glasgow but is also now available in Zoom format.
