Lk 21: 29-33

Then he told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees; as soon as they sprout leaves you can see for yourselves and know that summer is already near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

The things that don’t matter

“I tried so hard and got so far, but in the end, it doesn't even matter,” proclaimed the rock band Linkin Park. If I am honest with myself, I know how easily I allow myself to be distracted or preoccupied with things that, in the end, doesn’t even matter. From worrying over the uncertainties and circumstances beyond my control to endlessly scrolling through the digital content that fights for my time and attention, these too shall pass.

But my relationship with God is forever and shall never pass away. I find consolation in knowing Jesus Christ will never leave me to face the challenges of this world alone. 

So what will capture my time and attention today? What will I welcome into my heart and mind?

Even with all of my mess and clutter, will there be room in my heart today for Christ to enter and dwell in me?

Prayer

My God, I do not know what must come to me today. But I am certain that nothing can happen to me that you have not foreseen, decreed, and ordained from all eternity. That is sufficient for me. I adore your impenetrable and eternal designs, to which I submit with all my heart.

I desire, I accept them all, and I unite my sacrifice to that of Jesus Christ, my divine Savior. I ask in his name and through his infinite merits, patience in my trials, and perfect and entire submission to all that comes to me by your good pleasure. Amen.

—St. Joseph Pignatelli, SJ

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.
