JOIN THE WAITING LIST NOW SO YOU CAN JOIN THOUSANDS OF OTHER MEN AROUND THE WORLD IN THE EASTER EXODUS BEGINNING ON JAUNARY 21, 2019
It Lasts 90 Days
Exodus 90 is a challenging 90-day period of prayer and asceticism, supported by a fraternity of 5-7 like-minded men. Exodus fraternities are spiritually directed by a priest whenever possible.
The 90-day benchmark is not an arbitrary number; it is essential for freedom. That’s the period it takes to re-learn the joy and satisfaction of self-mastery and freedom.
During Exodus 90, you slowly read through the book of Exodus and commit to 20-60 minutes of silent prayer each day.
You take on the story of the Israelites and are guided by daily meditations that open up the Sacred Scriptures in new and enlightening ways. But this isn’t just a bible study, Exodus 90 is much more.
We cannot say “yes” to God until we have said “no” to the world and its comforts. During Exodus 90, you will return to the Church’s ancient (and largely lost) tradition of asceticism. Essentially, asceticism is the spiritual discipline whereby a man practices self-denial, self- restraint and self-mortification, and, for those who desire greater growth, a more rigorous self-denial, more extreme abstinence, and increased austerity – all for the purpose of growing in personal freedom.
Exodus 90 is not a self-help program. You’ll invite 5-7 men to journey with you, and where possible, your priest will serve as your spiritual director. These meetings are an opportunity for men to give a self-report for accountability, to receive encouragement from the brotherhood, and wisdom from the spiritual director.
There’s no better way to re-awaken your diocese, parish, or men’s group in these dark times that call for prayer, penance, and renewed trust.
