Imagine podcast: Lent edition
So much of Jesus’ ministry focused on healing and reconciliation. Have you ever imagined yourself in a gospel scene where Jesus is healing a broken or marginalized person? What can we learn about God and ourselves from these moments? In this new Lenten season of “Imagine: A Guide to Jesuit Prayer,” Tucker Redding, S.J. will guide you through a form of prayer called Ignatian contemplation, prayer exercises designed to help you place yourself in various scenes from scripture. This season, we’ll join Jesus on his journey to the cross while reflecting on stories of healing and reconciliation from his ministry.
If this is your first time practicing Ignatian contemplation, we recommend listening to this series explainer: What is Ignatian Contemplation?
