February 27, 2020 – The Lenten season is a journey that invites us to reflect more deeply on the life of Christ and the mysteries of our faith. In preparing for this journey, the spiritual traveler needs tools, resources and direction. If you're looking for assistance in your journey this Lent, you're in the right place.
Feb. 10, 2020 - This month Pope Francis is asking us to join him in praying to hear the cries of migrants. "We pray that the cries of our migrant brothers and sisters, victims of criminal human smuggling and human trafficking, may be heard and considered."
February 6, 2020 – In 1975, the Society of Jesus published “Our Mission Today: The Service of Faith and the Promotion of Justice.” Composed under the leadership of then-Superior General Fr. Pedro Arrupe, SJ, the document reminds us that we are to understand the pursuit of justice in the world as integral to the Ignatian way of proceeding. At the heart of Ignatian spirituality is the invitation to be a contemplative in action, and “action” means, in large part, working to create a more just society.
Jan. 2, 2020 - This month Pope Francis is asking us to join him in praying for the Promotion of World Peace. "We pray that Christians, followers of other religions, and all people of goodwill may promote together peace and justice in the world."
The invitation in Christmas is to reflect and shift our lives towards God’s wishes for us. Our hearts and activities should move in the same direction and be able to celebrate together the Nativity of Jesus.
December 22, 2019 – For Pope Francis, a perfect Christmas begins with us “making a mess” — that is to say taking a risk, seeing and speaking out about bad situations, doing something new, something different, something for justice, something that could change the misfortunes of the present so that the blessed future might arrive.
December 15, 2019 – “The desert and the parched land will exult; the steppe will rejoice and bloom. They will bloom with abundant flowers… They will see the glory of the LORD,” the prophet Isaiah tells us in today’s first reading. It is a beautiful image, but I can hardly imagine it. When we speak of the desert, the first image that comes to mind for me is not flowers and lilies blooming, but what I see in photos and videos of immigrants trying to cross the southern border into the US.
