Awarded second place in spirituality by the Association of Catholic Publishers and an honorable mention in classical spirituality by the Catholic Media Association.

Fr. Joe Laramie, North American director of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, offers a nine-day retreat that draws on the wisdom of Ignatian spirituality and the Sacred Heart devotion to help you know God’s love and desires for you.

Love Him Ever More is a powerful encounter with the Sacred Heart of Jesus that will help you encounter Christ in the world today and deepen your personal relationship with him.

Laramie leads you to reflect on your own heart, your wounds, and God’s healing mercy. He takes you on a journey of reflection on the Incarnation, the ministry of Jesus, and God’s call for each of us today. This personal retreat allows you to engage in Ignatian contemplation by using your imagination and five senses to encounter Jesus in the gospels and reflecting on your heart, the heart of Christ, and all hearts.

Each day begins with a quotation from the Spiritual Exercises and a grace to pray for, a personal story from Laramie, and contemplation on a gospel scene, and ends with reflection questions and a prayer.
