Audio Sample:

You are invited to renew your faith while journeying with Christ 25 minutes a day.

Beloved by his spiritual directees and members of the Georgetown community, Rev. Howard Gray, S.J., touched countless hearts during his lifetime.  The culmination of his life’s work, this 12-part retreat to Fr. Gray’s legacy as one of the great Ignatian retreat leaders and professors of the 20th century. You will experience prayer as laid out in the classic the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola while rediscovering the meaning of God in your life. It’s a sure way to know God, Christ, and yourself better.

Complete with a companion written guide, Rev. Gray’s audio retreat is ideal for a variety of uses. You can choose to enjoy these sessions at home, while driving, or in a more structured group setting.

A call to ongoing conversion—not simply from sin to ethical living—the Exercises will prepare you for true discipleship. As Rev. Gray illustrates, the Ignatian ideal is one of lifelong commitment to making the gospel contemporary: a guideline for all ages.

Throughout the stages of your journey, you will be confronted with a number of challenging and eye-opening topics:

  • the personal meaning of creation;

  • sin and forgiveness;

  • the person and mission of Jesus;

  • His Passion, Death, and Resurrection; and

  • the impact each of these has on your life.

Embark on this Ignatian pilgrimage today—at your own pace—and discover the freedom, self-donation, peace, justice, and love preached by Christ.

Winter Survey: January 2017
Howard Gray is an excellent presenter who provides high quality input in an easily assimilated manner. Review by Sister Carolyn Capuano, HM Canton, OH USA (Posted on 1/9/2017)
A fantastic introduction!
Fr. Gray's coverage of this material is pithy and to the point. He carefully follows the Jesuit style of giving the listener one point to focus on during a given lesson, and builds on it beautifully. As the course unfolds, Fr. Gray develops the theme that our lives with God are pilgrimages, travels replete with inner discoveries. I have been blessed to have been spiritually formed by the Jesuits and Fr. Gray's approach is marvelously resonant. It's something of a homecoming, a renewal, and a tonic. For those new to the Jesuit approach, it is a fantastic introduction. Review by Michael (Posted on 9/3/2015)

My favorite retreat was A Jesuit Retreat with Fr. Harold Gray, SJ. It served as an opportunity to make a private retreat with an engaging and interesting presenter.
