Noticing the Invitations

Mon, 06/29/2020 - 05:30

I stepped out of the car and found myself wrestling my raincoat away from the wind. Through the driving rain, something in the corner of my stairs caught my eye. Was it old leaves? Inching closer, I saw that it was a tiny, shivering sparrow, its feathers flattened by the rain. It didn’t budge, even […]

Beware a Lack of Listening

Fri, 06/26/2020 - 05:30

You become wise through listening. However, it’s impossible to listen if you’ve already made up your mind—because you don’t need more information, you know what you’re doing, and you don’t see how someone else’s experience really compares to yours. Watch this video excerpt on listening from my Small Simple Ways: An Ignatian Daybook for Healthy […]

Driving in the Fourth Week

Wed, 06/24/2020 - 05:30

I swore I would never get a vanity license plate. But then I did. I can’t exactly say it came from deep prayer and contemplation. It was an intellectual challenge to identify something that encapsulated my identity, values, and joys into seven letters. “Chocolate” had too many letters. Names weren’t allowed. “AMDG” was already taken. […]

Ignatian Optimism

Fri, 06/19/2020 - 05:30

I’ve always been a bit put off by people who exude positivity non-stop, the ones who only see the “bright side” or who think that the quality of life relies mainly on a person maintaining the “right attitude.” I wonder if such a person sees the same world I see: teeming with hurt, sin, suffering, […]

Ask the Sacred Heart

Wed, 06/17/2020 - 05:30

Alone in the dimly-lit living room, I craned my child-sized neck up toward a shelf with a small drawer under it. A votive candle cast a moving shadow on the wall. In our home the red vigil light constantly burned in waking hours before a statue of the Sacred Heart. When I was older, my […]

Rearview Mirror

Mon, 06/15/2020 - 05:30

Praying the daily Examen is somewhat like looking in the rearview mirror. That’s the starting point Joe Paprocki takes in a two-minute video for his Pop-Up Catechesis series. Paprocki is the National Consultant for Faith Formation at Loyola Press. For more resources on the Examen, check out the resources here on IgnatianSpirituality.com, including the series […]

Time Taken Out

Fri, 06/12/2020 - 05:30

Prayer is time taken out of the linear journey of our days, and it is also our most profound reality. When we pray, we move inward to our God center. Then we move out again. . . to our situation in the world. This movement into the center and out again brings about an act […]

Discernment in Times of Injustice

Wed, 06/10/2020 - 05:30

Ignatian approaches to discernment are sometimes posed in terms of life choices, such as which vocation we might choose or if a particular job is more than a career and becomes a calling. Or we can consider discernment to be an individual choice or perhaps the choices of a married couple or religious community working […]

The Promises of God

Mon, 06/08/2020 - 05:30

A few days before my grandfather died of brain cancer, he made me make him a promise: “Becksa, promise me you’ll tell people that they are not alone. Promise me you’ll keep telling people the Good News.” With tears rolling down my face, I looked my beloved Boppy in the eyes, and with commitment I […]

A Magnificent World

Fri, 06/05/2020 - 05:30

My backyard is currently a mix of broken kiddie pools, pieces of random toys, lots of mud, and so very many plastic cups. You can probably imagine me standing on my back porch, taking it all in, and shaking my head with dismay. You may even be able to feel my slight consolation as I […]

The Closeness of God

Mon, 06/01/2020 - 05:30

My immobility after the fall and during recovery showed me clearly how close God was to me. Previously, I was often so active that I didn’t realize this closeness. God waited until I was ready to listen to reveal his patient and gentle presence. I realized how everything I had taken for granted had actually […]
