We have collected a number of ‘spiritual’ apps and websites that allow for a mobile and fun way to prepare for the Feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
- The Jesuit Prayer app offers daily Ignatian reflections and prayer on mobile devices. The app also features Scripture readings of the day, downloadable prayer cards and a link for prayer requests. It is maintained by the Jesuits of the Midwest Province and is available on: jesuitprayer.org
- Pray As You Go is for those who prefer listening to reading… for the contemplatives in action… PAYG offers a daily prayer session, designed for use on portable MP3 players, to help you pray whenever you find time. Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection. It can be downloaded as a podcast or as a mobile app from pray-as-you-go.org. It is produced by Jesuit Media Initiatives a work of the Jesuits in Britain.
- Sacred Space offers a very simple way to pray in front of your computer screen or using your smartphone. The pages of the site offer to guide you through a session of prayer, in six stages, including preparing your body and mind, and culminating in reflection on a scripture passage chosen especially for the day. Sacred Space is a work of the Irish Jesuits sacredspace.ie and is available in 22 languages.
- For the social network literati out there, why not have some fun with ‘Find Your Inner Iggy’ a quirky way to nourish and share your own experience of Ignatian spirituality. It is a creation of Loyola Press and is available at: www.findyourinneriggy.ignatianspirituality.com
