Jesus calls us to repent and believe in the good news. We consider that in this week’s exercise in our Ignatian Workout for Lent. Listen to Tim Muldoon’s reflection below. If you’d like, share some of your own reflections in the comments.
Bring to prayer your desire to be part of something greater than yourself. Ask God to help you name which specific desires point you in the direction of that “something greater”—God’s project—and ask God to bless your attempts to be love for others.
Go to Mass and do an imaginative exercise before it begins. See the people in the congregation as God does, imagining that God has called each person to some specific work in building his kingdom. Imagine that God is calling you, too, to undertake a specific work, and offer yourself in this gathering of the Body of Christ toward God’s purposes. Pray with this intention throughout the Mass.
