Unwrapping the Gift of St Ignatius

iggy 160

Today (July 31) is the feast of St Ignatius of Loyola. He is one of the ten saints that we as MGL Sisters take as our patrons. He has left some timeless gifts to the church, no doubt inspiring many people down through the ages to discover God in new and life-changing ways. Here are just four of them – note to reader - this blog is a little longer than usual, but St Ignatius has so much to offer us that I felt it necessary to share each one of these gifts with you…..

I really love board games! My sisters could testify that when we were growing up, I would often ask them to play games with me, but the problem was that for them they were more like bored games.

bread

One of my favourite things to eat is hot, fresh, crunchy, white bread with lashings of butter, even more so when it is dipped in some creamy pumpkin soup on a cold winters day. It has a way of warming my insides, and is for me, a simple experience of joy.

 

 

 

 

 

Berna books 1 160 x 160As winter continues to descend, what better thing to do on a cold winter's day than snuggle up on a comfy couch (in front of a fire if you can!) with a book and hot cuppa. Here are reading suggestions!

vows renewaL 2018 160 X 160

Each year on the Feast of the Sacred Heart, we take the opportunity to privately renew our vows. For me, and I am sure for the other sisters, it is a beautiful opportunity to be renewed in consecration. It is a celebration of the life and love that living this way for Jesus brings. On this day, I recall the gift of the day of my Perpetual Vows. Here is the speech I made on the day; for me it is just as much true now as it was then.

 

 

 

BEST VIEW EVER IMAGE 1

I am sure you have many memories associated with amazing views – waterfalls, mountains, lakes, sunrises, oceans, beaches, rainforests, valleys, rock formations, rolling hills, bushy paths, Adoration…. Wait, did you say Adoration?? (or write it at least)!

 

 

 

 

Penola 2 160 x 160A few weeks ago, Melanie went to a Social Justice Retreat Day at Penola Catholic College in Melbourne. She presented on her work in the youth justice centre in Melbourne. It was a day of linking young people from the inside out, and from the outside in.

 

 

 

 

pentecost 2 small As a charismatic group of sisters, Pentecost is a great celebration for us. It is a great reminder of the power of the Holy Spirit - but it is also ood to remember that we can call on the power of the Spirit every day!

We also want to encourage you to join with us in praying a novena to the Holy Spirit, a long-standing tradition in the church, for after Jesus' Ascension, he commanded his disciples to gather together and pray for the coming of the Spirit.
