Ignatian Resources for Advent

As we prepare to celebrate Christ’s birth during the four weeks of Advent, Ignatian contemplation and reflective prayer can help guide us through the season. Here are some online Advent resources in the tradition of Ignatian spirituality:

Ignatianspirituality.com offers links to other Advent resources on the web, and its dotMagis blog is producing an Advent video series with a new video reflection posted each Sunday. 

Loyola Press has created an Advent website with printable and online calendars, prayers, an interactive retreat and more. New on the website for this year is the “Arts and Faith: Advent” video series, which explores the Scriptures in Advent through works of art.

Creighton University’s Online Ministries presents “Praying Advent,” which has daily Advent prayers, resources and reflections.

Georgetown University’s Office of Mission and Ministry is offering an Advent daily devotional. Sign up online to receive the daily emails.

Jesuit Refugee Service/USA has an online retreat with daily reflections that focus on “prayerful storytelling" about refugees through the lens of the Spiritual Exercises.
