Product Overview

Finding Christ in the World invites the reader to “let God show you where and how He concretely breaks into your life.” A 12–week prayer experience framed by the Spiritual Exercises, the book is of particular help to faith communities such as Bible study and prayer groups. But individuals can also use it as a means of prayer. The instructions for retreat invite a “conversion of heart from a tight focus on one’s self to a graced focus on God–with–us.” The book includes questions and prompts for reflection (for example, “When I think about God listening to me, I want to tell him…”), and guidelines for reviewing each week of prayer. We have improved the 2017 edition with curl-resistant front and back covers.

    Retreat Material

    Posted by Mary on Jun 18th 2020

    The retreat book is well bound. The pages are strong enough for journaling on. The content had a good introduction and clear description of how to do the retreat.

    I have participated in the Ignatian SpiriutalExercise for the past 4 years as a 32 week retreat. I’m in the second week of this 12 week retreat and find it beautifully capturing the essence of the exercises! I feel like it is a great introduction to Ignatian spirituality.

    Though I am just getting started with the retreat, it is truly drawing me towards a more intimate relationship with my Lord. An easy to follow format and clearly inspired by the Holy Spirit!

    Self-inflicted spiritual retreat

    Posted by Barry Fitzpatrick on Jun 4th 2020

    This is an incredible resource for anyone who wishes to dig deep and re-imagine a relationship with Jesus, one that will last and grow with you. Easy to follow, Just a real blessing if used - I hope my copy looks worn out in 12 weeks.
