The Rhythm of the Retreat: How it Works

Rhythm of the Retreat 

This unique online retreat, incorporating a variety of contemplative prayer methods, provides an individual plan for prayer done on your own schedule. You will notice there is a lot of repetition in our retreat. Just like in the Spiritual Exercises, we intentionally invite you to pray with the same scripture passage or colloquy twice, each week, to help you step even deeper into your prayer.  

Our weekly prayer plan includes:   

  • Wednesday: Guided Lectio Divina 
  • Thursday: Repetition of Lectio Divina scripture  
  • Friday: Guided Ignatian Contemplation 
  • Saturday: Repetition of Ignatian Contemplation scripture 
  • Sunday: Guided Colloquy 
  • Monday: Repetition of Colloquy 
  • Tuesday: Gathering the Graces: A Weekly Review of Prayer
