Ignatian Reflections for Pentecost
We ask for the grace to accept the Holy Spirit into our hearts anew this Pentecost.
A reading from the Gospel according to Luke, chapter 24:30-34.
While he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight. Then they said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning [within us] while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?” So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the eleven and those with the who were saying, “The Lord has truly been raised…”
- What keeps us locked away these days? What do we need the Holy Spirit to set free in us?
- How might we proclaim God’s love in new ways?
- The disciples on the way to Emmaus saw all things new in Christ in the breaking of the bread. Their hearts burned within them. How might you pay attention to those movements of your heart during particularly during this Ignatian Year?
