The Day 91 exercises may not be the only way to live a life of prayer, asceticism, and Fraternity. But, they very well may be the clearest.
What is Day 91?
Day 91 is a response to the cry for a clear way forward from years of Exodus Men before you. It is a specific, unifying, way for you and your fraternity to celebrate your accomplishment, learn how to defend your newfound freedom, and in fraternity with men around the world, keep following Christ forward.
Day 91 is a series of spiritual exercises set up like Exodus 90 (but not as intense). The series begins with a feast at Reflection Oasis. From there the path ahead leads into the Day 91 Backcountry, through each of the pillars of personal formation (human, spiritual, intellectual, and apostolic) led by the narrative Scriptures of Salvation History straight to the perfect man himself, Jesus Christ. Are you ready to keep moving forward? Are you ready to Feast? This is Day 91.
How do we get started?
Decide with your fraternity what your plan is for Day 91. Will you make your own plan for the ongoing life of prayer, asceticism, and fraternity with a daily reading of scriptures, reflections, and time as a fraternity or will you meet at Reflection Oasis keeping up, not only your unified bonds with each other, but also, your bonds with thousands of other Exodus Men around the world?
If you choose to start your Day 91 plans at Reflection Oasis, here are the two simple steps to starting.
- Select a start date.
If your fraternity already understands the benefits of making strides towards Reflection Oasis then your step here is to decide on a start Date. You can start Reflection Oasis the day after Exodus 90 ends if you want, but most men will wait until about a week after Exodus 90 ends, to begin.
2. Set the start date for Reflection Oasis in the app.
Once your fraternity has agreed upon a start date , setting the date in the app is up to you, the fraternity leader.
-From the home screen of the app select the exercise tab in the lower right hand side of the screen
-In the exercise tab select the Human Formation Range.
-There you will see a "Start" button under Reflection Oasis. Hit the start button
-When prompted, set the date your fraternity will begin Reflection Oasis in the designated space.
-Hit Next and you are done.
What if my fraternity isn't certain yet?
If your fraternity can't yet see the need for Reflection Oasis, no worries. Be patient with them. Nearly every Exodus Man sees the need for ongoing structure to their life of prayer, asceticism, and fraternity within 1-4 weeks after the end of Exodus 90. As you focus on finishing Exodus 90 together your next step is to select a date to celebrate. That is, set your next fraternity meeting after the end of Exodus 90. There, you can revisit the topic. Or at least assure that your fraternity keeps meeting after Exodus 90.
Whether your fraternity is ready to set a start date today, or they need a couple weeks to breathe, keep meeting as a fraternity. If you do this, the Lord will bless you and those you love through you.
