A Journey with Jesus to the heart of God through the Gospels, based on the 19th annotation of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius-Choosing Christ in the World.  We will walk, sit, listen, laugh, and cry as we accompany Jesus in His incarnation and discover our own story in His.

You will immerse in the Holy Narrarative for thirty-three weeks in daily sessions with Jesus, supported with prayer guides, Scripture, poems, readings, and time-tested prayer practices, as we follow the Church calendar.

You will identify and tend your deep longing to "see Jesus more clearly, love Him more dearly and follow Him more nearly"; being transformed into the image of Christ by the power of His love for the healing and blessings of the world.
