Barcelona and St. Ignatius

“Last Thursday, a break in Barcelona, walked pass the house where Ignatius lodged while he was in Barcelona by [my] wrong turn. I meant to go to Santa Maria Church; a cake shop owner locked her shop and directed me to the church; she only spoke Spanish. I saw the image of God in her.”

Traffic Signals

traffic signals

“Sometimes, I picture God in traffic signals. When we allow him to control our lives and follow his will things run smoothly. Sometimes we have to wait and don’t like it. Sometimes we have to go when it would be easier to have a red light. (I am assuming I am not the only one who uses red lights to talk on the phone, check directions, change the radio, answer or direct a child, eat, etc.) When we reject his guidance we end up wrecked. While God allows us to face consequences for failure to follow him, the rain reminds me that he grieves for us. He longs for us to commune with him. We know that God works out everything for the good of those who love him. They are the people who are part of his plan. (Romans 8:28) The road is often long and the journey difficult.”

Montserrat

Montserrat

“Montserrat, meaning ‘serrated mountain,’ view from the Jesuit Spirituality Center in Manresa, 25 miles from the mountain. The Black Virgin of Montserrat has been venerated since the Middle Ages by countless pilgrims, including Ignatius of Loyola, who was on his way to the Holy Land when he stopped at Montserrat. [There he] kept vigil all night long before Our Lady, left his sword and knife at her altar, gave his fine clothes away, and resumed his journey to the Holy Land. On the way to the coast, he stopped at Manresa, stayed 10 months instead of the few days he intended, and ‘the rest is history.’”

Montserrat

“Very early morning at Montserrat, the sanctuary and monastery, perched halfway up the mountain.”
