Inviting God In - Preparation
January 15, 2023
This week we begin walking the path of the labyrinth (with our fingers) and begin following the St. Ignatian Spiritual Exercises. Any exercise we do, we need to start with preparation. This week, we will begin preparing our hearts to remove all things that keep us separate from God, to begin daily practices or praying, meditating, and being in silence with God, and above all, seeking to find God's presence in all we do.
Quotes, scripture, and information this week taken from the following books:
Finding God in All Things (William A. Barry, SJ, 1984)
Meditations for the Twelve Steps - A Spiritual Journey (Friends in Recovery, 2012)
The Ignatian Adventure - Experiencing the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius in Daily Life (Kevin O'Brien, SJ, 2011)
The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius (translated by Father Elder Mullan, 1914)
