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.
