Chaotic. A word some might choose to describe the state of our world today. As we look at the global landscape, it isn’t difficult to see why—war and violence, illness and grief, economic uncertainty and fear, injustice and polarization rule the headlines and impact each of our lives in some way.
But on Ash Wednesday, a reminder: even now, says our God, return to me with all your heart.
The spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola asks us to find God in all things—seeing all people, things, and circumstances as gifts that can bring us closer to God.
So, yes, even now, even in the chaos, we are called to find God.
Throughout the Lenten season, writers from the Ignatian network will help us do just this—find God in the chaos. Join us each day as we dive into the story of hope, of justice, of God’s presence in a chaotic, broken world.
