Rediscovering the Graces of the 4th Week of the Spiritual Exercises Trevor Scott, sj

Saturday October 7 from 9 am to 4 pm

Cost: $60.
At the Ignatian Centre, 4567 West Broadway.


The 4th Week of the St. Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises is probably the least understood and experienced Week of the Exercises. In light of Jesus’s Resurrection this is the Week that retreatants are to experience confirmation in the Election that they made during their Spiritual Exercises journey, and to experience the inner joy of Jesus’s Resurrection with a quiet and gentle assurance. It is during this time of the Spiritual Exercises that we experience the movement of the consoling Christ coming to us, after our Passion experience of the 3rd Week, offering us peace, joy, consolation, and affirmation of our lives as Christians. 
Our time together will break open these graces of the 4th Week to explore them more deeply, discover the changes they are meant to bring to our lives, and why they are often so little received and misunderstood. This time with the 4th Week will hopefully help us live out the graces of the 4th Week more deeply, and be more effective transmitters of them as spiritual directors.

Contemplative Retreat with Father Carl Krull

A contemplative retreat for those who have a longing for a simpler and more direct union with God, having formerly meditated on Scripture with satisfaction, but feel an increasing frustration and inability to go on doing so.
The program involves following a detailed guidebook with weekly group meetings and with a director, as necessary.
Suggested contribution: $100 for 20 sessions (no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds). Participants will be required to purchase the guidebook, available at the Centre.
Date and time to be determined by the participants.

Fr. Krull is also available for individual retreats and/or condensed formats of the retreat.
