*The **Center For Ignatian Spirituality (Phil) **invites you to encounter
God in your everyday life *

The Retreat in Daily Life is for men and women who desire an intense
encounter with the Lord in their daily routine.

Those who have gone through the Retreat in Daily Life have these to say:

“Inspiring & revealing – It’s entirely a new experience each time I
encounter Jesus – a revelation of myself as person totally in need of His
constant guidance – how much I need Him in my life – and a revelation of how
present He is in all that I do.”

“My RDL experience has been beneficial for helping me discern what God wants
me to do in my life.  At this point, my life’s question is not anymore what
I want to get from the world, but how much I’ve served the world in the way

me to look into my interior – what’s going on in my life; why I am asking in
a certain way, etc.  It has also pruned me to open up to God-o to reach out
to Him, to answer His call.”

“My RDL experience is very fulfilling so far.  Because of RDL I can say that
I have improved with my dealings with other people & with myself as well.”

“The RDL is the most amazing experience I have had so far.  It is filled
with so much grace, love and compassion from our Lord.  Here, I am
discovering how gentle and loving Jesus truly is.  The experience is very
personal and moving.  Most importantly, I am getting to know Jesus more and
more and I am surely being healed of all that needs to be healed in my

The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius in Daily Life

Undergoing the *Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola* can be a most
profound and transforming spiritual experience.  It is a time for intimate
contact between God and the person making the Exercises.

For persons who cannot take time off to devote thirty days to do the
retreat, St. Ignatius offered the Spiritual Exercises in daily life.  The
retreatants do not leave their homes and places of work.  They keep their
regular schedules but commit themselves to a daily prayer period of 30
minutes to one hour and meet weekly with their retreat guide.

The *Retreat in Daily Life for Beginners* is an adaptation of the Spiritual
Exercises and is most suitable for those who are starting in their spiritual
journey, or those who want to attend to their spiritual thirst or hunger.  The
Retreat  Daily Life for Beginners runs for 14 weeks.

The *Spiritual Exercises* *in Daily Life* is for those who experience a
compelling desire to know, love and to pattern their life after Christ.  The
Spiritual Exercises in Daily Life runs for 35 weeks.
