The Spiritual Exercises For Lent!

 
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.

If you’re interested in participating, Email us and put “Lent” in the subject. This will allow us to create an email list and keep you updated with any pertinent links, messages or follow up explanations. For more information, be sure to listen to Following The Truth on Thursday and Friday (February 23-24) for a detailed discussion of the Spiritual Exercises and how they will be handled on the podcast.

In addition, Gary will be announcing the exciting news of the Spiritual Exercises on several network radio shows:

Tuesday,February 21 – The Son Rise Morning Show (EWTN Radio, 6:45 AM Eastern)

Wednesday, February 22 – Morning Air (Relevant Radio, 9:40 AM Eastern)

Friday, February 24 – Catholic Connection (EWTN/Ave Maria Radio, 9:35 AM Eastern)

Those who participated in Gary’s Total Consecration To Jesus Through Mary last year know how powerful of an experience this can be. Don’t miss the chance to do something SPECIAL for Lent this year!
