Bl Miguel Augustín Pro, S.J., martyr

Lk 21: 12-19

“But before all this occurs, they will arrest you and persecute you; they will hand you over to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors because of my name. This will give you an opportunity to testify. So make up your minds not to prepare your defense in advance; for I will give you words and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to withstand or contradict. You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, by relatives and friends; and they will put some of you to death. You will be hated by all because of my name. But not a hair of your head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your souls.

Support Each Other

It was an amazing opportunity to attend the Ignatian Family Teach-In, held last week in Washington D.C. I brought students there from Cristo Rey H.S. Milwaukee for their first time. We were planning on speaking with our local Representatives in Congress, about how our faith guides us towards treating the marginalized with human dignity. This was a task my students were hesitant to do so soon after the election, especially because many students were afraid of what might happen to their families and friends in the coming years.

However,  after spending time with the entire Ignatian family, and seeing all the communities present speaking about the same call of the Gospel, my students were very comforted in knowing that they were not alone. And that this community would be together as we were brought before “kings and governors, because of my name,” and that it would be Christ’s testimony and the Gospel that would lead their defense.

Let us continue to be the support for one, both those near and far, as part of the Ignatian Family. May we be the example of Christ when others feel alone and on trial.

Prayer

I believe, O Lord; but strengthen my faith…
Heart of Jesus, I love Thee; but increase my love.
Heart of Jesus, I trust in Thee; but give greater vigor to my confidence.
Heart of Jesus, I give my heart to Thee;
    but so enclose it in Thee that it may never be separated from Thee.
Heart of Jesus, I am all Thine; but take care of my promise
    so that I may be able to put it in practice even unto the sacrifice of my life.

—Blessed Miguel Augustin Pro, S.J., martyr of Mexico

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.
