Ignatian Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life: Part 27

Apr. 6, 2016 - Praying along with the retreatant of the Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life.

On the road to Emmaus, by DuccioThis week, the retreatants are praying on the theme of “The Risen Life”. We continue to reflect on the role of Christ as consoler. In your own life, look for signs of how God has consoled and continues to console you and the people around you. Where do you find joy? Who or what gives you joy?

Prayerfully read Luke 24: 13-35 (Jesus appears to disciples on the road to Emmaus). Notice how the disciples do not recognize him at first. Notice how Jesus walks and listens to the disciples in their sadness and confusion. How has Jesus walked with you? How do you recognize Christ? Have you experienced your heart burning? What desires are stirring in your heart?
