Ps 42

As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God.
 
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God?
 
My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me continually, “Where is your God?”
 
These things I remember, as I pour out my soul: how I went with the throng, and led them in procession to the house of God, with glad shouts and songs of thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival.
 
Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help
 
and my God. My soul is cast down within me; therefore I remember you from the land of Jordan and of Hermon, from Mount Mizar.
 
Deep calls to deep at the thunder of your cataracts; all your waves and your billows have gone over me.
 
By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.
 
I say to God, my rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I walk about mournfully because the enemy oppresses me?”
 
As with a deadly wound in my body, my adversaries taunt me, while they say to me continually, “Where is your God?”
 
Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God.

Trick or Treat

It’s Halloween weekend, a great family time for the ghosts and goblins, pirates and princes, who come to our doors shouting “Trick or Treat.” It is also a time when the seasons change, the harvest is in, the chilly November winds are about to blow. In the coming days we will celebrate both the “All Saints” and “All Souls” feasts.” These days remind us of our family history, the heritage of the communities where we live, those neighbors and friends and other local “characters” who make our days interesting…and sometimes challenging.
 
You and I might sometimes complain about the “daily grind”—the daily sameness of life that can sometimes hang heavy on our hands and hearts. This weekend and the holy days that follow invite us to cherish our families and neighbors, classmates and friends. They are all saints and sinners like ourselves. They inspire and challenge us; they are bearers of grace, occasionally stumbling blocks of insight and opportunity. Look around you — look in the mirror: the grit and glory of God’s Reign are in our midst!
 
—The Jesuit prayer team 

Prayer

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.  
As it was in the beginning, is now and always will be,
world without end. Amen!
 
—Traditional prayer to the Holy Trinity

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.

May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
