Joseph Conwell SJ“The amount of careful, painstaking labor that went into the Taking the Exercises to the World handbook is astonishing. Well planned, well executed, interesting, and pertinent examples to capture the reader and illustrate the text.

The charts are creative and illuminating. The questions for sharing are clear, precise, and to the point. The meeting notices, the opening and closing prayers along with the creative environments surrounding them, the meeting formats and the suggestions for facilitating the meetings, the sample talks, the appendices, all are extremely useful and stimulating. A job well done! The handbook should be an invaluable asset for any Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life group or, for that matter, for anyone studying the Exercises.”

~ Fr. Joseph F. Conwell, SJ
