Ignatius: returning the gifts

Sunday, July 31, 2022
    Commemoration of Ignatius of Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus, 1556
    My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
    —John 10:27 (NIV)
    Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have and possess. Thou hast given all to me. To Thee, O Lord, I now return it. All is Thine, dispose of it wholly according to Thy will. Give me Thy love and grace, for this is sufficient for me.
    ... St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491/5-1556), The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, New York: P. J. Kennedy & Sons, 1914, p. 120 (see the book)
    See also John 10:27; Matt. 6:7-8; John 6:37-39; 7:17; Rom. 12:1-2; 14:8; 2 Cor. 5:5; 1 Pet. 4:19
Quiet time reflection:
    Amen and amen.
