Reflections from Our Directors

Autumn Memories

Autumn Memories

Each autumn I find myself steeped in memories. With every season, we live with the anticipation knowing God is with us.  Even as we enjoy or grieve what has passed, there is hope for the crunch of a fresh Honeycrisp apple, pulling on a favorite sweater, and enjoying the moment at hand as the briskness of the fall settles in.

Savoring Summer

Savoring Summer

Savoring the taste of summer can also be a metaphor for savoring moments when we notice we feel the most alive.  St Ignatius said, “Whatever you are doing, that which makes you feel the most alive…that is where God is.”  If we are open to the gift of all our senses, then we can experience God in a deep and abiding way.

Intention for Respite

Intention for Respite

Every summer I begin by hoping I will be refreshed and renewed by the time September rolls around.   Yet, with the demands of daily life; with the condition of the world; with work and family, there must be intention in my seeking respite. 

Thank You!

Thank You!

People give in many ways. Donations are crucial to a non-profit like Loyola. So, too, are the referrals made to Loyola. Thank You!

Peace

Peace

“Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work.  It means to be amid these things and still be calm in your heart.”
