How did our Bibles come into existence? When we think about "Old Bibles" we tend to think of an old King James Bible, or perhaps the Gutenberg Bible. But that only brings us back to 1450 A.D. The Bible existed long before that!  Did you know that with the New Testament alone we have 5,800 ancient Greek manuscripts? Did you know that there are Old Testament fragments even older than the Dead Sea Scrolls?  Come and discover a world of ancient languages, papyri and parchment . . . a world of ancient texts that witness to God's Word and action in the world.

Fr. Steve Hurd, SJ, and Ann Dillon from the Manresa Jesuit Retreat House in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, will lead an engaging overview of the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Topics include: Ignatian Spirituality, Consolation, Desolation, and 'Our Way of Proceeding'; an overview of the Spiritual Exercises; the Dynamic of the Exercises and Ignatian Prayer; the Examen and Ignatian Contemplation. Everyone interested in a deeper spiritual life is encouraged to attend.

Please note: This offering fulfills one of the prerequisites for applying for the Internship in Listening Ministry (see the note of explanation at the beginning of the brochure; link above). This internship, which trains individuals to serve as spiritual directors, takes place at Manresa Jesuit Retreat House. Manresa’s next application deadline is June 1, 2016, and their internship program will begin around the middle of June, 2016. Please visit www.manresa-sj.org for more information. Again, you do not need to be interested in the internship to attend this offering.
