Finding God in Each Moment is an invitation to become more attentive to the way the Spirit leads you and perceive more clearly God's presence and action in the world by considering your relationships as the very places in which you daily experience God's guidance. Through nine Moments of Love, the spiritual stages through which any healthy, growing relationship progresses, you will learn how to experience God's action while identifying the qualities needed for becoming more responsive to God's invitation to growth. Selections from scripture, the writings of St. Ignatius, and the documents of Vatican II will lead you to discover how each moment holds the opportunity to be taught by God.
Carol Ann Smith, S.H.C.J., a spiritual director and retreat guide, has extensive experience with Ignatian spirituality which has shaped her ministries of preparing spiritual directors in Diocese of Toledo, Ohio and encouraging lay people in their faith development. She served as Director of the Center for Ignatian Spirituality at Marquette University for ten years. She is a member of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus and holds graduate degrees from Villanova University and Catholic University of America.
Eugene F. Merz, S.J., a Jesuit, has offered spiritual direction and retreats based on The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and given Ignatian Spirituality workshops around the world for laity, priests and religious men and women. His years of ministry within the Society of Jesus, in the diocese of Des Moines, Iowa and also at the Center for Ignatian Spirituality have focused upon the spiritual renewal of priests, religious and laity that was encouraged by Vatican Council II. Merz holds graduate degrees from St. Louis University.
Smith and Merz are the authors of the widely acclaimed Moment by Moment: A Retreat in Everyday Life, a groundbreaking book which made the retreat process of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius available to a wide audience for use in homes, parishes and many other settings. Like Finding God in Each Moment, it was based on their years of experience in accompanying others on their faith journey.
