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.

We shall soon be in a world in which a man may be howled down for saying that two and two make four, in which people will persecute the heresy of calling a triangle a three-sided figure, and hang a man for maddening a mob with the news that grass is green.

Sister Janice Bachman has agreed to present an #Ignatian #spirituality workshop for SEEL Tri-Cities in March 2019. We are excited to hear what she has to share with us. More coming on our website.

“And this will be A sign for you. You will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.” May we all read this sign and praise God for His great gift.
