What are you doing for Lent this year? Here’s a personal invitation from Gary Zimak:
The Spiritual Exercises were composed by Saint Ignatius Loyola during the years of 1521 to 1533 and are based on Sacred Scripture, personal experience and the writings of certain spiritual masters, especially Thomas a Kempis (the author of The Imitation of Christ). Using the writings of Saint Ignatius, the notes of the late Jesuit scholar, Fr. John Hardon, and several other sources, Gary has developed a version of the Spiritual Exercises that will be presented on his nightly 30 minute podcast on BlogTalkRadio.
On Monday, February 27, 2012, Gary will begin the Spiritual Exercises on his nightly show. According to Saint Ignatius, the two-fold purpose of the Exercises is:
1. To prepare and dispose the soul to free itself from all inordinate affections.
2. To seek and find the will of God concerning the ordering of life for the salvation of one’s soul.
