Advent Resources

We are called to Ignatian contemplation and reflective prayer to encourage us in the season of Advent. Below we highlight Advent resources in the tradition of Ignatian spirituality.

Jesuit Prayer – Receive the daily Scripture reading, an Ignatian reflection, and a short prayer each day through the app, on the website, or by signing up for the daily email. We also offer personal responses to prayer requests; all are remembered in Masses celebrated by the Jesuits.
