Today is the feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola, who was a priest and founder of the Jesuits.

On February 12-15, 2009, Fr. Xavier Ray of Miles Christi, a religious order, was in Hawai'i to give a retreat to 34 women. The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius was introduced to us, and we relished on the teachings of the saint for almost three days! Held on the grounds of St. Anthony's Retreat House, we observed silence and meditated on what was served to us. I was amazed at how Christ-centered they were, which to this day, help me in my journey to a more Christ-centered life.
