March 6, 2019 — Today,
Ash Wednesday, marks the beginning of Lent, and the Ignatian family has a wide
array of resources for prayer and reflection to guide you through the next
40 days. Bookmark this page as we will continue to update it as resources
JesuitPrayer.org, produced by the Jesuits' Midwest Province and available as iOS and Android
smartphone apps, will offer a total of nine videos throughout Lent,
along with a daily Ignatian prayer and an Ignatian reflection written by
Jesuits and lay collaborators.
Solidarity Network is hosting a daily reflection series called Broken, with free Ignatian-inspired Lenten reflections delivered to your
inbox. Featured contributors include: Sr. Simone Campbell, S.S.S., executive
director of NETWORK; Bishop Mark Seitz, Bishop of El Paso; Joan Rosenhauer, executive director of Jesuit Refugee Service/USA; and many more.
The St. Francis Xavier Environment Ministry at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York City invites everyone to grow closer to creation with daily suggestions on a Lenten calendar.
Santa Clara University’s Jesuit School of Theology invites
you to participate in A Heart Renewed, an online retreat
written by members of the JST community — students, faculty and alumni.
Subscribers will receive an email each morning containing a reflection and the
listing of sacred texts from Scripture for each day of Lent.
December 1, 2019 – The Universal Apostolic Preferences give us ways into contemplating the mystery which Advent itself unfolds for us. They invite us to a ‘contemplative listening’. In each we are directed to hear and follow the Spirit who is calling to us. Often, too, we will come to recognize those who are already on the way before us; those who can lead us and teach us.
December 1, 2019 – Advent is a liturgical season of great significance to Christians. We have the opportunity to reflect on, and prepare for, Jesus entering the world as a child in need of love and care. As we contemplate Jesus as a child, vulnerable and fragile, we are able to see his greatness.
December 1, 2019 – This Advent, the Jesuit network will be inviting you to engage more deeply with God through Ignatian spirituality, a spirituality that challenges us to be both contemplative and active. Through your Advent prayer, ask: Do I hear the cries of the earth and the poor? How do I respond? Does my response point to a hope-filled future?
November 8, 2019 – Our Fall 2019 workshop, "Spiritual Direction for Young Adults" was held on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at Ignatius House in Atlanta, Georgia. The workshop was recorded, and the video is now available on our website. Thank you to all who participated!
