Prayer

Imagine You Walked with Jesus

What would it be like to meet Jesus, face to face? To walk with him along the roads and seashores of ancient Palestine…to eat with him, to hear his words, to witness his miracles? For centuries, Christians have sought a more intimate, personal encounter with Jesus through the practice of Ignatian contemplation, also known as imaginative prayer.

 

In Imagine You Walked with Jesus: A Guide to Ignatian Contemplative Prayer, you’ll learn the method of imaginative prayer proposed by St. Ignatius of Loyola five hundred years ago and practiced by millions of Christians today. Then, you’ll be guided through forty Gospel-based encounters with Jesus, from his birth to his resurrection. With the help of the Holy Spirit, you will have the opportunity to interact with Jesus, just as his first followers did, forging a deeper, more life-giving relationship with the Son of God.
