The Five Unfolding Movements

within the Spiritual Exercises

  1. You begin with an invitation to discover that God really, really, really loves you.  ​

  2. From the safety and assurance of the infinite love of God, you are gently led into an honest appraisal of sin, its consequences and how it gets in the way of your relationship with God. Grace and mercy gain fresh meaning as you look at your life-defeating patterns.  

  3. From here you move into the invitation and experience of being a disciple; watching and learning about Jesus, both His humanity and His value system.  As a result, you naturally find yourself desiring to know Jesus more, to love Him more and to trustingly follow Him.  

  4. This intimate friendship with Jesus moves you into the Passion where you consider “How can I be a friend to Jesus in the last hours of His life?”  

  5. In the final movement you experience the Risen Christ who consoles you and joyfully shares His resurrected life with you.
