Jn 15:9-11

As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.

Overflowing with Joy

What brings you joy? What fills you with abiding happiness? What makes you feel most alive? Whether being with your loved ones, finding time daily for prayer, pursuing a hobby, spending time outdoors, or anything else, that feeling of true joy is one we sense at the core of our being. 

Being a follower of Jesus means, in part, living from a place of abundance and freedom, knowing that we are each created in the image of God and called into fullness of life—a life full of radical love, hope, and joy in the here and now, and a promise of eternal life after our time on earth. 

While our faith and beliefs help guide us in how we live, this orientation of ourselves—God’s beloved—toward our creator is not meant to be one of limitation and restriction, but rather one that makes us overflow with joy and purpose. May God’s immense love for and relationship with us be our greatest source of joy among the many other gifts we are given.

Prayer 

You have turned my mourning into dancing;
you have taken off my sackcloth
and clothed me with joy,
so that my soul may praise you and not be silent.
O Lord, my God, 
I will give thanks to you forever. 

Psalm 30:11-12

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
