With this, we end our time with the Exercises over Lent and Easter. We pray that while reading these posts, you have been able to develop your relationship with the Lord, and come to know and love Him more fully. While we won’t be putting up any new material until next Lent, we will keep the posts up so that you can go back and draw fruit from them as much as you like.

As you continue praying and getting to know the Lord in everyday life, you may wish to keep praying in the way recommended by St. Ignatius. There is a post from last year that gives a good introduction to Igantian prayer.

You may wish to use this as you go back over some of the prayers for the Resurrection, or the Contemplation to Attain the Love of God from yesterday. Alternately, using this method to pray over the daily Mass readings could also be a fruitful practice. Whatever your preference, taking a little bit of time each day to be with Jesus in prayer will always be important in maintaining and deepening a relationship with Him.

We hope to be back next Lent to go through the Exercises again, and hope that you will join us again in order to get to know the Lord better and discern better how to follow Jesus in all that you do.
