Exodus 90 is your roadmap.

 The 4 Pillars

Exodus 90 is a challenging 90-day period of prayer and asceticism which is supported by a fraternity of like-minded men.

90 Days 

The 90-day benchmark is not an arbitrary number; it is essential for freedom. It is a period of apprenticeship whereby a man can re-learn the joy and satisfaction of self-mastery and revered freedom. Most men consider the 90 day period of purification a manly challenge, something that may have been missing in his life for a long time.

In addition, researchers have found that it takes about 90 days – the length of many rehabilitation models, including AA – for the brain to “reset” itself. Interestingly enough, people in recovery have known this saying forever “90 meetings in 90 days” because when the brain is engaged in a habit for 90 days it becomes easier to do.

Prayer

Readings from the book of Exodus and the corresponding meditations and action items are meant to guide a man’s prayer throughout the 90 days of Exodus.

Each man also commits to at least 20 minutes of daily prayer. Where possible this is to take place with the other brothers of the Exodus 90 fraternity. Read more why you should give Exodus 90 a shot!

Asceticism

  • cold/lukewarm showers
  • no alcohol, no desserts & sweets, no soda or sweetened drinks
  • no eating between meals
  • no television or movies or televised sports (without permission of group)
  • only music that lifts the soul to God
  • computer for research ONLY
  • regular and intense exercise
  • no major material purchases without permission of group
  • seven hours of sleep each night

Brotherhood

Exodus 90 fraternities are flesh-and-blood groups of 5-7 men that meet at least once per week for no more than 30 minutes. These meetings are an opportunity for men to give a self-report for accountability, to receive encouragement from the brotherhood, and wisdom from the mentor. There’s no better way to take your men’s group to the next level, or to form a new small group around this challenge. Read more why brotherhood is crucial to Exodus success!

“In a life that is chock-full of distractions and temptations, Exodus 90 is a means of growing in the holiness and freedom offered to us in Christ.  It employs the time-tested Catholic disciplines of asceticism and prayer in the context of fraternity, and I am pleased to endorse this as something men should consider.”

– Most Reverend Kevin C. Rhoades

Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend

“Exodus 90 is rediscovering and reintroducing the faithful to the Church’s beautiful tradition of penance. Not in a negative way that punishes ourselves but in a positive way that invites us to experience the fruits of prayer, fasting, and brotherhood. Indeed, the priests and laymen I know who have undertaken this ascetical adventure have been surprised by the way it has transformed their lives. I recommend it for any man who wants to deepen his relationship with God, grow in self-mastery, or learn to love more like Christ.”

– Bishop Andrew Cozzens

Auxiliary Bishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis
