Welcome! We invite you to make a 'Sacred Space' in your day, praying here and now, as you visit our website, with the help of scripture chosen every day and on-screen guidance.
Something to think and pray about this week
After much experimentation I eventually settled on a brief morning offering and then silent listening through spiritual reading or just being quiet, perhaps doing some journaling.
This type of prayer is most often how I seek to sort out the letter of the law from the spirit of the law. Fewer words make space for quiet listening. Some people pray through meditation, some say memorized prayers, some absorb the wonder of creation and see that “It is good.” Some look at that same creation and are frightened by the power of wind, rain, and fire, wondering about the source of such a destructive force. Finding God in all things is the core of Ignatian spirituality but it can be a challenge and a mystery. Some things look very mundane and ordinary; hardly holy looking. Others look fearsome and confusing. It’s both daunting and awesome. That’s why we need to let go of cheap faith and deepen our faith for the long haul.
