One of the presenters on my retreat this weekend mentioned this statue in her talk. It’s of St. Ignatius of Loyola, and it can be found in Guelph, Canada.
As I looked at the image, I couldn’t help but think of the words of St. Paul: “… forgetting what lies behind but straining forward to what lies ahead, I continue my pursuit toward the goal, the prize of God’s upward calling, in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14). Today, let’s not dwell on our past, but rather, with hopeful expectation, look forward to a brighter future. What’s holding you back?
Have a blessed Monday!
