Ignacio is one of three favorite Saints. The other two are Thomas Aquinas and Thomas More. July is Ignatius month. Here are two of my favorite prayers.

“Suscipe” is introduced by Ignatius in the section of “Contemplation to Attain the Love of God” in the “Spiritual Exercises”. This is a prayer for discernment, to help one make a decision.

This is another favorite Ignatian Prayer. It has no direct provenance of authorship to Ignatius but as Fr. Jack Mahoney S.J. has written about the “Prayer of Generosity”- “…, of which we can be sure is that the master of generosity would whole heartedly approve it.”
