When I heard that Catholic men are doing it, I was interested:
90 days. No televised sports. No sugar and sweets. No Social Media. No alcohol. No meat on Wednesdays and Fridays. Rosary. Strenuous exercise. They call it Exodus 90.
I know men from the Troops of Saint George and from The Maccabee Society who have finished Exodus 90 and they have great things to say about it. So today some friends and I begin our first day. What is Exodus 90? From there site:
Exodus 90: The Purpose
The goal of Exodus is to achieve the freedom necessary to fully engage the love of God and the love of neighbor. Exodus is based on a challenging 90-day period of purification, a dying to self, which is supported by a fraternity of like-minded men for greater interior freedom and, eventually, a more purified and selfless love.
Most importantly Exodus is for men who have difficulty finding God and desire to radically unite himself to his Heavenly Father. Exodus is not a program of penance and self-abasement. It is a program for men who seek, together, to strive for more-perfect FREEDOM. This is the cornerstone of the exercise and much will be lost if that is forgotten.
So today begins Day 1. I’m excited. If you’re interested or know a man who may be interested, check out Exodus 90.
