An Ignatian Thought

Decernment

Over the past several days, I've been getting myself ready for my upcoming retreat.  It's all a bit overwhelming, with lots to do and lots to think about.

What are we going to do?  What am I going to say?

A reoccurring challenge found in St. Ignatius' Spiritual Exercises kept coming up in my mind as I prepared my talks.  I was thinking about what it might mean to those who will be listening to me, but I was also thinking about what it means to me.  Since it keeps coming up in my head, I guess that means I needs I need to take a pause and pray about it.

St. Ignatius asks three simple questions:

What have I done for Christ?  What am I doing for Christ?  What ought I do for Christ?

Something for us all to think about in the week ahead.
