Pause + Pray

Learning from Ignatius of Loyola


St. Ignatius’ signature phrase “finding God in all things,” may have begun at the Shrine of Aranzazu, where he prayed on his journey to Jerusalem. There, Our Lady appeared to a surprised shepherd who asked, “You, among the thorns?” Exactly where God might be found–unexpectedly, in the messiness of gritty lives.


“Give me only your love
and your grace,” St. Ignatius said.
“That’s enough for me.”
Help me to s
ay this too, Creator and Dreamer God.
Lead me gently into surrender.


Spend 10 minutes today thinking about what God’s dream for you might be, and how you’re moving toward it.
