This project is based on a method of leading The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
Loyola, called “The Retreat in Daily Life,” which has been used in the Archdiocese of
Oklahoma City for the past two decades and more. The text for “The Retreat in Daily Life”
was assembled by Sister Marie Luecke, OSB of Red Plains Monastery, Piedmont, OK. The
retreat is given in the “nineteenth annotation” style, beginning in October and ending in
May. Each year the calendar is adapted slightly to coincide with the Liturgical Year. This
project adds an “Earth-focus” to the process.
