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.

While the Preferences are not exactly ranked, it seems appropriate that the Spiritual Exercises should come first.

21 de abril de 2019 – DESTROZADOS, APLASTADOS, ROTOS… Todas nuestras suposiciones, nuestros prejuicios, nuestras confusiones y desesperanzas, todos nuestros pecados dispersos por el suelo. Esparcidos como si una ametralladora hubiese explotado afuera de una tumba vacía.
