Why do spiritual exercises? Pope Francis explains

2014-03-03

Pope Francis explained the benefits of getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. He made the remarks before the Italian Federation of Spiritual Exercises.

POPE FRANCIS
"Those who live the Exercises in an authentic way experience the attraction and the appeal of God, and return renewed, transformed in ordinary life, in ministry, in daily relationships, bringing with them the fragrance of Christ.”

Pope Francis also added that men and women need to meet with God, not just know him through "hearsay.”

In a few days time, on Sunday, Pope Francis himself will get away, and begin his spiritual exercises in Ariccia, southeast of Rome.
