- Forty Weeks
Forty Week: An Ignatian Path to Christ with Sacred Story Prayer (classic art edition) is the parish version of the new Ignatian Examen as detailed in the book: Sacred Story—An Ignatian Examen for the Third Millennium. Designed as a parish spiritual renewal program/resource for pastors, parishioners, adult faith formation directors and RCIA programs, it also serves as a self-guided prayer experience for the individual user.
Forty Weeks will be a life-changing annual program to introduce congregation members to a heart-felt personal relationship with Jesus in daily prayer, spiritual discernment and a regular and fruitful practice of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. All in all, about twenty years’ worth of reflection, study, testing, feedback, and refinement have gone into this updated version of St. Ignatius’ powerful Examen prayer.
Forty Weeks is a perfect program of solid, classic spirituality updated for the third millennium to promote the new evangelization first described by Pope John Paul II early in his papacy, continued by Pope Benedict XVI and now strongly proclaimed by Pope Francis.
