- Think of your favorite story or historical event. Re-read a synopsis of the story or event. Try to picture yourself within the story. How would you respond if you were there? If it’s an historical event, would you you try to change history?
- Try the same as #1 above, this time with a favorite story from the Bible or a biblical story that you know well.
ActivityListen to the Ignatian guided meditation with Kai and Libby! Lectio Divina Ignatian Meditation
Reflection by Father Vince Kuna, C.S.C.Consider turning to the Gospel reading from Matthew (4:1-11) that traditionally begins the season of Lent. Pray the Ignatian Meditations with this reading, that tells of Jesus venturing into the desert for 40 days and 40 nights (the root for our word “quarantine”). Pay special attention that our Lord chooses social isolation for this time period. He does battle with the Devil alone. The Devil is unsuccessful in his temptations, because Jesus observed the most radical of fasts: choosing to live solely on prayer to the God, Father. When your financial situation is lean, or your social engagements limited, think how might we see this as an opportunity to scale back on material and social needs and instead focus time and energies on prayer.
