All the Saints and Blesseds of the Society of Jesus

Rm 15: 14-21 

I myself feel confident about you, my brothers and sisters,* that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, and able to instruct one another. Nevertheless, on some points I have written to you rather boldly by way of reminder, because of the grace given me by God to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles in the priestly service of the gospel of God, so that the offering of the Gentiles may be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. 

In Christ Jesus, then, I have reason to boast of my work for God. For I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished* through me to win obedience from the Gentiles, by word and deed, by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God,* so that from Jerusalem and as far around as Illyricum I have fully proclaimed the good news* of Christ.

Thus I make it my ambition to proclaim the good news,* not where Christ has already been named, so that I do not build on someone else’s foundation, but as it is written,

‘Those who have never been told of him shall see,

   and those who have never heard of him shall understand.’

Imagining a Path Forward

My favorite part of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is when Linus steps center stage and says, “Lights, please.” His friends were full of goodness, yet Linus boldly proclaims the intention behind Jesus’ birth. 

This weekend, close to 2,000 people from various Jesuit institutions will travel to Washington, D.C., for the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice.  The theme will challenge us all by “Imagining a Path Forward – Reflection. Reckoning. Kinship”. The intention is to create a path where Jesus’ ministry can be built. Our organization, Bee at Peace, will be presenting and creating space for women of color to be seen, heard, and understood.  We are proclaiming our place as beloved sisters of Christ. 

Lights, please. 

Lauren Morton is the cofounder and Executive Director of Bee at Peace, Inc and an associate at Ignatius House Jesuit Retreat Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

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.
