What kind of person becomes a saint? The answer is any kind of person. Sacred Story Institute’s pioneer program Forty Weeks is based on the spiritual practices of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the last man anyone expected to become devoted to God, let alone a Saint. He was graced by God with an understanding of the human psyche that was far ahead of his time, and, with that gift, he developed not only his Conscience Examen, but also his Spiritual Exercises and Rules for Discernment. Forty Weeks offers a highly practical, easily understood, week-by-week process to find integrated healing and peace in Christ.It is the narrow road which thousands of people all over the world have taken since we first published the program in 2012,. It has been translated in Spanish and Italian, and we look forward to many other translations in the future. If you are ready to make Christ the center of your life, you will find no better daily spiritual prayer discipline. Divine love is an abiding relationship that God invites you to share in daily. The wisdom found in Forty Weeks will help you to enter this daily abiding love relationship with God. That relationship is your Sacred Story.

Gathered in this booklet is a sampling of the simplest but most effective pathways to connect with God in daily life. Most of the sections have been influenced by my retreat work with high school and college students, university faculty, and alumni. The rest of the booklet contains spiritual wisdom and advice that I have found holds universal appeal to all age groups seeking growth in the Christian life. All of it is intended as a means to draw you deeper into God’s love. This divine love is offered to you every single moment of your life. It is most completely offered in the Eucharist.

How and why did St. Ignatius Loyola develop the Examen prayer? What is it supposed to accomplish for those who practice it? Why do people choose to forgo this discipline that has proved to be invaluable and essential to spiritual growth and the discernment of spirits over the centuries? What are the contemporary cultural crises confronting today’s would-be Examen practitioners provoking distrust, fear, or dismissive attitudes towards it? How can an Examen faithful to Ignatius original method be modernized to address the mindset of today’s Christians? This book in its three parts takes a new approach to answer these questions. It provides a new analysis on how Ignatius' spiritual Examen disciplines were developed, the challenges inherent in practicing them, and a dynamic new reading of the Examen called Sacred Story. This book will give you the spiritual tools you need for a practical, daily prayer discipline that incorporates principles of spiritual discernment.

William Watson’s Sacred Story is an exceptional work. It masters the difficult task of integrating spirituality and psychology and creates an original, rigorous, brilliant and scholarly book. It is an excellent contribution to Ignatian Spirituality and spirituality in general. The author has the ability to take the classic Ignatian Examination of Conscience and recreate it with great originality and scholarship. It illuminates with brilliant insights and accuracy the fields of both psychology and spirituality. Books like this rarely come along once a decade.
