Is 1:10. 16-20

Hear the word of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom! Listen to the teaching of our God, you people of Gomorrah! Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow. Come now, let us argue it out, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be like snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

Loved Sinners

Loved Sinners

When Pope Francis was asked, “Who is Jorge Mario Bergoglio?” he responded, “I am a sinner whom the Lord has looked upon.” In the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, we are guided to recognize that we are “sinners yet loved.” Just as Pope Francis states, the Lord looks upon us with great love, and then calls us forth to share the love that we so mercifully receive. Pope Francis has called an Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. As we continue into this jubilee year and enter more fully into Lent, we are being invited to “wash ourselves clean” and “set things right.” God’s mercy and love are greater than any sin we may commit. How do I encounter God’s mercy in my life, as a sinner loved by God? How might I share God’s mercy with those around me? —Marcos Gonzales, a Jesuit scholastic of the California province, is completing his masters of social work at Loyola University Chicago and interning with the Cook County Juvenile Probation Department.

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.
