Each of the Weeks of the retreat has a Guide page that lays out how to make that week of the retreat. The Guide page gives the theme of the week, particularly the grace to pray for that week. On the right side of the weekly Guide are the resources you can use with that week.The Photo: This image helps us focus during the week. There are instructions there for setting the photo on your desktop for the week.Getting Started: Additional help for beginning that particular week, and shaping one's reflection during the week.For the Journey: Fr. Larry Gillick, S.J. writes a simple reflection for the week, as an aid to entering more deeply.In These or Similar Words: A help for praying with my own words, with an invitation to personalize my prayer.Readings: Readings from Scripture or other sources that support the graces for that week.Prayers: Another resource to help enrich the week's reflection.Each week is different, in the graces asked for and in the material reflected upon. And, one week builds upon another. The growth is progressive and step-by-step.
