I think these last Exercises are particularly fitting as we draw to the end of a year. The new year is a popular time to make resolutions to change. What I love about the most important work of Christ's life--and it continues today--is that He continually invites us to change and turn to Him. I encourage you to contemplate what you can change about your life, commit to a plan to make that change happen, and then do it!
