St. Ignatius of Loyola invites us to use our imagination while praying with Holy Scripture, to picture a particular biblical scene as if we were standing right there:
What do I see, hear, smell, etc.? During this retreat, based on spiritual exercises from St. Ignatius, Fr. Bob will use specially composed instrumental music and texts to help retreatants enter into moments in the life of Jesus. Please bring your iPod, iPad, MP3 player, or computer. (CD players may also be used but only for a few.)
