❖ Ignatius of Loyola suggests that those who wish to “dispose their soul to rid itself of obstacles in their relationship with God, in order to seek and find God’s will in the ordering of their life” can profit especially from making the full Spiritual Exercises in a month-long period that is set apart for the Lord.
❖ People who have already made a silent retreat (or an 18th/19th annotation retreat "in daily life") can apply to participate in this experience, which the Villa offers in English and French from June 28 through July 31. For more information, please contact Gabriel Côté, SJ, at
