St. Paul and the Call to Adapt to Radical Change

1 day 1 hour ago

By dotMagis Editor

Paul had an extraordinarily active life. It’s exhausting just to read about his missionary journeys: the many times he was shipwrecked, persecuted, imprisoned, and beaten. Finally, he was accused of various crimes by the Jewish authorities and exercised his right as a Roman citizen to appeal his case to Caesar (Acts 25:11). When he got […]

My Attitude About Time and Manna

4 days 1 hour ago

By Loretta Pehanich

Each day, God gives me enough time. It sure doesn’t feel like it. Today I did not have time to play my guitar or piano or read a novel, nor did I quilt, exercise, write an overdue thank-you note, or nap. I really wish I had more time. And I remember the Israelites wanting more […]

Assuming the Best Intentions While Discerning as a Couple

6 days 1 hour ago

By Marina Berzins McCoy

St. Ignatius wrote many letters, and on occasion I read from a collection of them to learn more about his approach to applying spirituality in a practical way to life. I recently read one in which he had been asked by a wealthy couple to help them decide what to do with their property after […]

Why God Makes Us Wait

1 week 1 day ago

By Shemaiah Gonzalez

I have heard that God always answers prayer. Sometimes the answer is “Yes.” Sometimes it is “No.” And sometimes it is “Wait.” There was a time when God’s answer to my prayer was “Wait.” I didn’t really listen, though. I figured I could make it all happen on my own. I went out and made […]

Cannonball Moments: A Webinar with Eric Clayton

By dotMagis Editor

While most of us do not have experiences quite as dramatic as St. Ignatius’s cannonball moment, we still have our stories of experiences that served as catalysts leading to change in our lives.

God as Gardener

1 week 6 days ago

By Gretchen Crowder

I despise gardening! It’s not gardening’s fault, really. It’s mine. I do occasionally try to garden, but every time, it fails miserably. Usually my foray into gardening begins with the sudden desire to have beautiful flowers adorn my front door. I hurry to the nearest nursery and load up on a few potted plants—the bigger […]

What Would Ignatius Think About Social Media?

2 weeks 1 day ago

By Lisa Kelly

With all our technology we truly have the capacity to live our lives in almost constant contact with others virtually anywhere. So really, I don’t ever have to say goodbye. We can live on via e-mail forever. I wonder what St. Ignatius would say about trying to do so. I think he would say that […]

Easter’s Expectant Playfulness

3 weeks 1 day ago

By Marina Berzins McCoy

When my children were younger, we used to go to the Easter Vigil Mass. As a result, Easter morning was at home. The Easter Bunny visited the night before and left not only an Easter basket with candy and small toys, but also eggs hidden around the house. As the Bunny had done for me, […]

One Particular Cat and the Resurrection

Elizabeth Meets Jesus

4 weeks 1 day ago

By Loretta Pehanich

Similar to St. Ignatius’s contemplation involving an encounter between Mary and her Son after his Resurrection, this meditation is not based on Scripture. However, Luke 1:5–56 inspired this story. I love my time in the garden. It consoles me to work in the soil, even if it’s just pulling weeds. Today I needed consolation. News […]

Lenten Read-Along: Room for One More

1 month ago

By Julianne Stanz

At the heart of the Irish expression, céad míle fáilte, meaning “a hundred thousand welcomes,” is the understanding that each person that we meet is someone that we should receive with great care, dignity, and honor, because we would also like to receive that same care, dignity, and honor. One of the people in my […]

The Sorrow Christ Endured for Me

1 month ago

By Eric Clayton

This post is based on Week Seven of An Ignatian Prayer Adventure. I never seemed to have enough bug spray in Bolivia. Not that it really mattered—the mosquitos were supercharged. They’d bite clear through my jeans, and I’d have these welts up and down my legs. Mosquitos aren’t known for playing fairly. This is what […]

Prayer for Sitting Watch with Christ

1 month ago

By Gretchen Crowder

Every time I have needed Christ, I have found him waiting patiently for me in a school chapel. The first school chapel I visited regularly to seek Christ’s presence was my dorm chapel at Notre Dame. I went there often when no one was there to have a little one-on-one time with Christ. That would […]

Signs of Peace

1 month 1 week ago

By Eric Clayton

This post is based on Week Six of An Ignatian Prayer Adventure. We’ve become all too familiar with images of war, violence, and destruction. We see cities turned to rubble and deadly weaponry clenched in resolute hands. We see, too, in graphic detail what sorrow and pain look like; we see it etched into faces, […]

Tilling the Soil of My Heart

1 month 1 week ago

By Rebecca Ruiz

When I was a child, I thought of Lent as a gloomy time. This was partly because where I grew up, the weather at that time of year was dark and dreary. Nearly every day, the clouds would hang low to the ground, emitting a misty drizzle that would coat my eyelashes. More than once, […]
