The Spiritual Exercises are a gift that St. Ignatius has given to God’s people. It is referred to as a School of Prayer. The Spiritual Exercises come from Ignatius’ own experience. They help people to live their ordinary lives with a God perspective, with a real sense of the value of what they do. Ignatius has been able to translate his experience into a format that you can use to become fully alive.

Genesis Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
