“I can’t remember the last time... I spent a good hour in prayer. Having that time set aside was very much needed, and even more fruitful. Praying by means of Ignatian contemplation is definitely something I’ll continue to do.” Annie, Milwaukee

“St. Ignatius and the Holy Spirit inspired you well. Each talk tugged at my heart. It was wonderful to ‘fall in love with Jesus’ all over again. Thank you!” Patty, Iowa City

“I’d be surprised if a single retreatant went home without at least one talk having set his or her heart on fire.” Tom, Chicago

“I liked the consolation/desolation talk. It helped explain some of the realities we experience and how to deal with them.” Ron, Philadelphia
