New Bible translation 'The Message' a notable achievement

Friday, Aug. 15, 2014
Recently, I completed a 30-day Ignatian retreat in Los Angeles (I hope you are all impressed!). The central feature of St. Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises is intensive reading, several times a day, of key Scripture passages on Jesus’ life.

It is a very popular devotion in the Church, and many miracles have been attributed to it: thus its name. It also has an interesting place in Utah Catholic history. >>>
