While Ignatius recommends setting aside time for prayer and communion with the Lord, in his personal life, prayer was never separated from action. There was a constant interplay between experience, reflection, decision and action, in line with the ideal of being a contemplative in action like Jesus himself was. Since God is at work in all things, persons and events, Ignatius constantly endeavoured to find him there.
All too often, we tend to separate the sacred from the secular, the soul from the body, word from action, and even the Eucharist from life. Through the intercession of St. Ignatius we pray for the grace to be inspired by our Master Jesus to be able to find God in all things and all things in him.
God, Creator and Sustainer of the Universe, we pray that through the intercession of St. Ignatius of Loyola, we may have the grace and courage to collaborate with you in your work of salvation, of bringing all things to perfection in you. Give us like St. Ignatius had, the grace to see and find you in all things, and all things in you. We make our prayer through Christ our Lord.
