Dear Community of the Ignatian Spiritual Life Center,
As we enter into the Triduum, take a moment in these days to rest, to pray & to try and see the world with Jesus' eyes.
During Holy Week I use Ignatian contemplation to pray with the Gospel stories of Jesus' suffering, death & resurrection. In this way of prayer, you use your imagination to place yourself in the midst of the Gospel story and witness what unfolds. Through our imagination, we are able to see and discover more of who Jesus is and who we are in Jesus' eyes. Jesus is always ready to deepen his relationship with us, he is always ready to show us something new.
This week Jesus seeks to share his life and death with us. Ultimately, he shares his resurrection, his unwavering love and his unfailing hope. What it is that Jesus is inviting you to see, hear and hold this week? For some ideas about ways to reflect and have some "holy calm" this week check out Ignatian Spirituality.com's article: How To Do Holy Week. This week, as we always are as as the community of the Ignatian Spiritual Life Center, let's imagine God's dream for the world and come to know, even more deeply, how we can make God's dream a reality.
