The Little Details

Detail in life is oft overlooked but isn’t it the tiny things that make things whole? Awareness is the key to unlocking the gifts of Ignatian spirituality.

The Fifth Week

Finding God in Near-Food-Poisoning

Not long ago I had an unexpected encounter of God: amidst the pains and fears of imminent food poisoning.


We have a tendency to say thank you because it’s expected or it’s a social norm. But Ignatius encourages us to be more intentional about gratitude.

Prayer is an invitation from God, inviting us into relationship with God. It gives us a chance to take part in the story of creation, have an effect on the world, be involved in its God-story, and most importantly, reflect on how we contribute. These resources hope to reveal the infinite facets of prayer, the many ways we reach God, and how God reaches into our lives: in love, with words, in silence, seeking our desires, at different times, in different places.
