Three-Minute Retreat

On the Web, unlike older forms of publishing, everything that publishers do can be measured. Recently the Web team at Loyola Press looked at the numbers and discovered that 44,000 people use our 3-Minute Retreat every day. One retreatant said this about it:

My days are so hectic. My children are eighteen (away in college), fourteen, eight, and ten months so I hardly have time for myself. This helps me breathe and be at peace.

Give it a try if you haven’t already done so. You’ll find the retreat on our website. If you have an Apple device, you can get an app for it here.

  2. I sometimes recommend this to friends. Each day brings a breath of the Spirit to begin the day or refresh it. I am surprised and disappointed that you have not updated it to be even more relevant for those seeking respite during the upheavals of this pandemic. An even larger audience would be blessed.God bless you and Loyola Press.

  3. I have been praying the retreat for years and am grateful for it. However, I am disappointed that it does not follow the Church year. Today is the feast of the Annunciation and the meditation had nothing to connect to Mary. We are in Lent and it does not mention or follow the Lenten readings. I was hoping that the new update would correct this as I have seen others mention this as a problem. I know so many would welcome this improvement. I hope you will take this into consideration.

  4. I so enjoy reading the 3 min retreat It brings to life what I need to become more of for the deeper love Of my Lord & a of us
