St. Ignatius, memorial
The Image of the wheat and weeds is a clear picture of the reality of Life.
That there is goodness and evil in our midst. That there is joy and also sorrow and pain. That there are good times and also the bad times and yes even good health and sickness.
Amidst all these, the Lord would like us to have an attitude of Trust and Confidence.
To learn to surrender ourselves to His love and Power.
Here, the Prayer of St. Ignatius is fitting:
The Prayer of surrender.
“Take Lord, receive all my Liberty, my memory my understanding and my entire will. Give me only Your Love and your Grace, that’s enough for me.” Amen.
This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.
"Leaps of Faith"
"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
