Sample text

The resources are not meant to lead you through the Exercises, although they follow the sequence of meditations that Ignatius found to be most helpful in developing a spirit of complete generosity toward God. They are proposed as a possible help to a kind of contemplative prayer that involves looking at the Lord and what he has done. Thus I suggest that during these weeks you meditate on Psalms 103, 104, and 105 and any others, that may provide a pattern for your prayer to God in praise and thanksgiving for all that he has done.

Rather the notion is to build upon all the experiences which have been part of my prayer day. Again it is akin to the passive way my senses take in sights, smells, sounds, feelings, as an automatic datum for my attention. The total felt-environment of the particular mystery of Christ's life, in whatever ways it can be most vividly mine, is the setting for the final period of prayer in each day [12225].
