Prayer for the Week

Loving God,


We come to you filled with gratitude for making us partners in your ongoing work of creation.

You call us to be part of this community and bless us with a unique legacy

that began with Ignatius Loyola and has been passed

from generation to generation.


The gift of our mission, founded on the practice of reflection and discernment,

enables us to make decisions which call us to stand in solidarity and kinship

with all those who share our earthly journey

and moves us to perform active service rooted in justice and love.


These gifts of our Ignatian heritage invite us to be part of a tradition

that builds on the wisdom of the past

with a vision open to the opportunities of the future.


These gifts also challenge us to move beyond our norm,

to broaden our imagination,

to deepen our trust,

and to establish your kingdom here on earth.


Fill us with enthusiasm and wonder as we receive these gifts

with open minds, generous hearts, and a willing spirit.

Following the example of St. Ignatius, may we, too,

"labor and ask for no reward except that of knowing we are doing your will."

May we take full possession of this heritage and joyfully pass it on

to those generous men and women

who walk behind us into the future.
