1ST DAY - WEDNESDAY, JULY 22, 2015
OPENING PRAYER: Lord, teach us to be generous. Teach us to love you and serve you as you deserve. To give and not to count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labour and not to look for reward, save that of knowing that we do your most holy will.
DEEP PERSONAL LOVE FOR JESUS CHRIST: One quality that characterised the life of St. Ignatius above all others was his deep personal life for the person of Jesus Christ. Ignatius was so taken up with Christ that he was willing to do anything, go anywhere, and be anyone as long as he could imitate Christ.
Father in heaven; give us today the same grace that Ignatius received - to know Jesus intimately - to love him more dearly - and to follow him more closely. Help us to remember that with Jesus as our model - we may be able to reveal him - in all we say and all we do. This we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
CLOSING PRAYER: Take Lord, receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, my entire will. You have given them to me, to you I return them. Give me only your love and your grace that is enough for me.
