Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have and possess. Thou hast given all to me. To Thee, O Lord, I return it. All is Thine, dispose of it wholly according to Thy will. Give me Thy love and Thy grace, for this is sufficient for me…
Welcome to FRESHImage Presents!
St. Ignatius of Loyola composed the Suscipe prayer as part of his Spiritual Exercises, to prepare our hearts for daily meditation by consecrating our Free Will to GOD
There are so many ways that our freedom can be taken from us or that we can abuse the freedom we’ve been given, and in this prayer, St. Ignatius has really provided us with an Eucharistic axis point for our lives – that is the one thing our existence revolves around and the one thing that ought to penetrate all facets of our being and sets us free.
Today Tony explores the thought of this great saint and founder of the Jesuit Order to seek for the meaning of True Freedom in FRESHImage Presents, St. Ignatius of Loyola and Eucharistic Freedom.
