St. Ignatius of Loyola: Spiritual Exercises

Gods Love and The First Principle

and Foundation Gods Mercy over My Sinfulness Following Christ: My Response to Gods Faithfulness

The goal of our life is to live with God forever.

All things in this world are gifts from God. As a result, we appreciate and use all these gifts of God insofar as they help us develop as loving persons (Tantum Quantum)

But if any of these gifts become the center of our lives, they displace God and so hinder our growth towards our goal.

Activity:
At your age now, what do you think are the ways you can attain the goal in which you are created? List ten (10) ways in which you think the GOAL you are created. Be specific and concrete.

Sin?

Sin set us apart from [others] God. It is the conscious rejection of His LOVE
We have the tendency to sin but Gods love surpasses our weaknesses and sinfulness through Christ. But sin is not the last word with God, it is MERCY AND FORGIVENESS!

Following Christ.video!

In the best moments of our life, when we are inspired to live a good life, to love everyone and everything, and to do good deeds, we cannot find a more appropriate example to follow than that of our Lord Jesus Christ.

St. Ignatius views on love,

Real love is manifested through actions more than through words. Love is a mutual affair. The lover communicates and gives to the beloved what one has or able to give and the beloved to the lover. Each shares with the other what one has.

Each one will get a piece of paper Divide the paper, crosswise, to three (3) equal parts 1st part: draw a symbol/s describing your present condition in in following Christ 2nd part: write concrete ways on how you can truly follow Christ. 3rd part:draw a symbol/s describing your ideal way of following Christ Be ready to share it with your seatmate.

Suscipe of St. Ignatius


Take, O Lord, and receive my entire liberty, my memory, my understanding and my whole will. All that I am and all that I possess You have given me. I surrender it all to You to be disposed of according to Your will. Give me only Your love and Your grace; with these I will be rich enough, and will desire nothing more.

At the back of your Following Christ activity sheet, write your own SUSCIPE to the Lord.
