On 2.25.27, Ashlee Eiland guided us into the agony of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Last night, Father Michael led us in a contemplation to help us prepare for the season of Lent. We imagined ourselves at the foot of the cross and asked:
How is God inviting you to deepen your practice of prayer during Lent?
What might God be inviting you to fast from to experience greater freedom in Christ?
How is God inviting you to express solidarity with the poor and suffering face of Christ in the world?
On 2.11.18, Father Michael led us into the third movement of the Spiritual Exercises and prepared us for the season of Lent.
This is the final contemplation in a series of imaginative prayer resources written by and recorded for The Practice community.
Imaginative prayer is way of meeting with the Lord by using our imagination to enter a Gospel story. Using our imagination to experience the sights and sounds of the scene helps to bring our whole selves into the presence of Christ. The purpose of this prayer is to meet Jesus face-to-face and grow in intimacy with Him.
