Daily Meditation – God’s Love for Us (Part II)

[During the “first week” of the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius, consideration is given to how much we are loved by God. From this consideration, we begin to realize how much we have not responded to that goodness and hence are then able to respond to our sinfulness with open honesty. This understanding of and sorrow for our sins opens us to the love and mercy of God. Consider the following in the context of God’s love for us and our love response to him as well]

 

The Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from Christ's side, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints
and with Thy angels
Forever and ever

Amen

- A favorite prayer of St. Ignatius included at the beginning of the Spiritual Exercises for which he suggested reciting as at the conclusion of one’s prayer time.

Daily Meditation – Prayer & Our Mind

 “If we do not fill our mind with prayer, it will fill itself with anxieties, worries, temptations, resentments, and unwelcome memories.”

Daily Meditation - Surrendering to God's Will

[Consider the following prayer from St. Ignatius as taken from the Spiritual Exercises]

Take, Lord, and Receive
 
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will.
All I have and call my own.
Whatever I have or hold, you have given me.
I return it all to you and surrender it wholly to be governed by your will.
Give me only your love and your grace and I am rich enough and ask for nothing more.

Daily Meditation – Prayer with Unwavering Faith

[Consider unhesitating faith which depends on “singleness” of mind and purpose]

When he was going back to the city in the morning, he was hungry. Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went over to it, but found nothing on it except leaves. And he said to it, "May no fruit ever come from you again." And immediately the fig tree withered. When the disciples saw this, they were amazed and said, "How was it that the fig tree withered immediately?" Jesus said to them in reply, "Amen, I say to you, if you have faith and do not waver, not only will you do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' it will be done. Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive."

- Matthew 21: 18-22
