Ignatius fully realized that not everyone could take 30 days to participate in the Spiritual Exercises so he instructed how the retreat could be made over a period of months. This is called the “19th Annotation” retreat simply because it is explained in Ignatius’ 19th annotation in the beginning of the Spiritual Exercises. Retreatants who participate in what is commonly called “the 19th” give themselves to the Exercises generously and faithfully each day. The retreat is a powerful influence in giving direction to one’s life and to help one grow in faith, in knowledge and love of the person of Jesus Christ, and in freedom to follow the Lord’s invitation.
If you are interested in making “the 19th” please call (650) 917-4000.
