"Home" is a powerful spiritual theme, particularly in uncertain and difficult times. In Come Home, trusted spiritual director Marie Schwan blends insights from the contemplative tradition with Ignatian and twelve-step spirituality, gently guiding readers to discover and embrace the wonder of God's presence within them.

Come Home is an ideal book for parish retreats, small groups, staff development, and as a recommended resource for parishioners seeking spiritual direction.



"Plumbs the depth of our hearts."

"Sometimes little thin books seem quick and easy to read. But Marie Schwan's book is deceptive; though thin, its profundity takes time as it plumbs the depth of our hearts."

Rev. George Aschenbrenner, S.J.
Author of Stretched for Greater Glory

"Gifted spiritual director."

"A gifted spiritual director and teacher by example, Sr. Marie Schwan writes an eminently practical and readily accessible book on living from one’s center. In true Ignatian style, she reminds us that the door is everywhere, the way is Jesus, and the map—though rooted in Christian tradition—are also shaped by one's own particular personality, history, and gifts."

Cynthia Sabathier, C.S.J.
Director St. Joseph Spirituality Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

"Enriching and challenging."

"Marie Schwan, C.S.J., brings to this slim yet potent text years of experience in spiritual direction and retreat work. Enriching and challenging, Come Home is a call to live at the center, rather than the circumference of our lives."

Most Rev. Robert F. Morneau
Auxiliary Bishop of Green Bay, Wisconsin
