Labyrinth

prayer labyrinth

“During my last Ignatian retreat, this labyrinth accompanied me in most of my meditations. I would walk on it, without my shoes, feeling the concrete on my feet. I would walk very, very slowly, relishing my thoughts, knowing that each step was a prayer. God was truly with me while I walked this labyrinth at the Cenacle Retreat House.”

Grassi Lakes Trail

“I lead a pretty hectic lifestyle in the Philippines, and coming back to Canada, my second home, for a vacation is always the time for centering myself again. This past weekend, we hiked up the Grassi Lakes Trail in Canmore, AB (despite my gouty right foot), and this was the view that greeted us at the top. I was in tears, thankful to be experiencing such beauty and in awe of God’s majesty. It was so worth the pain.

“This is where I found God this weekend.
This is how He shows me His love.
This is how He speaks to my heart.”

Submitted by Trixie N. Valdes.

spring plants

“As the snow finally melts from our harsh Maine winter, I see new growth poking up from the earth through the leftover fallen autumn leaves. Those leaves decay and give nourishment to the bulbs planted below. From death, new life arises.”

Contemplatio exhibit

Contemplatio is an interactive and artistic representation of the Spiritual Exercises. It was first put up last year by Scholastics Eric Escandor, Eric Esteba, and Alvin Laput, SJ, as a way of introducing the Spiritual Exercises to the Ateneo de Manila University community, especially to the college students. They put up a simpler version this year, this time as a floor labyrinth. The idea is to make an encounter with the Lord inviting and attractive to many people.
