Creative Apostles

Do you feel like an apostle? What is an apostle anyway? ‘One who is sent’. Those twelve encountered Jesus and it changed their lives: God’s forgiving, healing and transforming love became real to them in Jesus. And they had to go off – tell the world! If you are reading this, in some way, maybe very deeply, you too have ‘encountered Jesus’. You’ve made the breakthrough, you’re no longer indifferent, floating along; now Jesus is more and more ‘pulling’ you along in mysterious ways. How to share this will people around you? Each generation has to find ways to do it. But make no mistake about it – if you’ve encountered Jesus, this didn’t happen just for you. Like anything really good, it’s meant to be shared. Talk to others who have encountered Jesus, we’re in this together in the church. Be creative apostles! —Fr.Mark Henninger, S.J., a philosophy professor by trade, now serves as a pastoral care chaplain at Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL.

Prayer

Lord, sometimes we feel like our mission is “no big deal.”  Sometimes we don’t even know if we have a mission or how to go about finding it. Other times our mission can paralyze us with fear — how will we ever live up to the expectations of the mission. And sometimes we see our mission over yonder with no way to bring it closer. We place our confidence in you, Lord. If we really listen to you, to those you bring into our lives and to the situations that call forth our growth, we will live a mission directed by you and one that brings forth our best. —The Jesuit Prayer Team

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.
