The Ignatian Workout for Lent Retreat: Holy Week

During this Holy Week, our Ignatian Workout for Lent invites us to reflect on trial and suffering. Listen to Tim Muldoon’s reflection below. If you’d like, share some of your own reflections in the comments.


What does a meditative reading of the story of the trial stir up in you? What trials have you faced, or are you facing? Can you find a place in your heart where you are willing to trust God the way Jesus did?


In the coming days, set aside time to undertake the stations of the cross. Give yourself time to consider how meditating on Christ’s way of the cross sheds light on the specific struggles you are facing.

  1. “to trust even when the Father seems absent”……….
    only possible if one has developed a deep relationship in the past
    with a Father who loves us beyond our grasp.
    thank you – this was beautiful Tim. Lyn
