On Saturday, we talked a lot about the resurrection and learning to love like God (What Ignatius called the contemplatio). But I also spoke at length about the Paschal mystery. If you go through the presentation, you'll read about the Pascal mystery having five parts: Death, Resurrection, Ascension, Waiting 40 days, and Pentecost.

We each live the Paschal Mystery in our lives, sometimes going through the five steps over and over. Sometimes it takes a long time, even years. Sometimes it's short. We can even experience the Paschal Mystery all in one day! When we suffer loss, we can choose how we want to suffer, of course. Christ offers us a way to make that suffering redemptive. (2 Cor. 7:10)

Fortunately for us, our wounds can be healed and redeemed. We can learn to love like God once we embrace the methods of Jesus - the death, resurrection, Ascension, and receiving the grace of the Holy Spirit so we can go on to spread God's love.

Easy to get both permanence and variety with God. God’s beautiful Creation provides more variety than any of us will ever need. As for permanence, eternity is everlasting - the most permanent thing there is.

At our Monday meeting of the Preparation Day Retreat, we had 23 participants! (Most years we get about 12). God has blessed us and we are excited to begin another season of the #SpiritualExercises of St Ignatius #19thAnnotation.
