And if you are a man and haven't signed up yet for Flavigny Monastery's Ignatian Retreats, do it now! Flavigny was originally formed to continue a tradition of offering Ignatian retreats as part of the program of re-evangelizing France in the 1930s, so has long experience in this field. The Monastery itself was originally closely associated with the SSPX, but was reconciled to Rome in the mid-1980s (before Le Barroux). You can find out more from their excellent website.
