Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of the Society of Jesus

Jn 3: 16-21

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. “Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 

And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.”

God opens the door to salvation

Picture a child who strayed to the deep end, struggling to keep his head above water and in danger of going under.  At this moment, does a loving parent call out what the child is doing wrong or dive in to fish him out?  The Gospel tells us that God sent Jesus to bring us to safety.  Out of his great love, God sent his only Son, the Lamb of God, to remove the weight of sin and open the door to salvation.  Thank you, God!  Hope in the Resurrection!  But hope is not a strategy.  We are called to believe in the Word made flesh, walk in his light, live in truth and join him in eternal life.  

Do we believe? Is our belief evident in our works?  The incarnation of Christ happens every Mass through the consecration.  Do we let his light, his truth, his love live through us?

Prayer

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within your wounds, hide me.
Do not allow me to be separated from you.
From the malevolent enemy defend me.
In the hour of my death call me,
And bid me come to you,
That with your saints I may praise you
Forever and ever.
Amen

—Anima Christi

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.
