The Risen Jesus

Imaginative Contemplation Exercises The Resurrection (Pray as you go Logo)

Saint Ignatius believed that God could speak to us just as clearly in our imagination as through our thoughts and our memories. In his Spiritual Exercises he writes of contemplation as a very active way of engaging your feelings, emotions, and senses to place yourself in the scene described.

This imaginative contemplation exercise focuses on the scene of the empty tomb from Matthew's Gospel.

After the Sabbath, and towards dawn on the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala and the other Mary went to visit the sepulchre.
