If you have never checked out Loyola Press’ 3 Minute Retreats, I highly recommend you do so! The retreats are available online or you can buy an app via your iphone or ipad. They can even be delivered daily to your email! I enjoy these short retreats because they offer both a scripture and 1-2 thought provoking questions.
For today’s 3 minute retreat reflection I delve into the question: How can I let go of my desire to hide from my sin and instead face my wrongdoing and seek God’s forgiveness?
What are your thoughts on that question?
Becky is an Ignatian-trained spiritual director, retreat facilitator, and writer. She is the author of the Busy Lives and Restless Souls (March 2017, Loyola Press) and The Inner Chapel (April 2020, Loyola Press). She helps others create space to connect faith and everyday life through facilitating retreats and days of reflection, through writing, and through spiritual direction.
With nearly twenty years of ministry experience within the Catholic Church, Becky seeks to help others discover God at work in the every day moments of people’s lives by utilizing St. Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises and the many gifts that our Catholic faith and Ignatian Spirituality provide.
This seeking of God s forgiveness must be a part of our Nature.The wrongdoing must belong to the same nature.No question on how this nature or human nature ,is qualified for forgiveness , let go and move ahead ;
but instead uses other less human , less divine, features of personality, which does not include the simple movement of forgiveness.
Something to overcome.
