Room at the Inn: An Ignatian Journey with the Holy Family into Advent
Journey with the Holy Family through “visio divina” (praying with images) and Ignatian contemplation of Scripture.

Join renowned iconographer Kelly Latimore and poet and Jesuits.org columnist Cameron Bellm for a free virtual Advent evening of prayer and reflection. We'll approach the journey of the Holy Family through both "visio divina" and Ignatian contemplation of Scripture, asking ourselves how we can see the holiness in every human being during this special season, and how we can open our hearts and our lives to receive them.

Program Overview:

*Kelly will share about his creative process and how he enters into the stories of Scripture through writing icons.

*Cameron will speak about St. Ignatius' understanding of attention ('acatamiento') as affectionate awe, and how we can put it into practice in our own lives.

*Kelly will lead us in a "visio divina" exercise with one of his icons of the Holy Family.

*Cameron will lead us in an imaginative Ignatian contemplation of Luke 2:1-20, giving us an opportunity to prayerfully and individually enter into the story of Christ's birth, which is ever ancient, ever new.

As an accompaniment for the Advent journey, each participant will receive a free digital prayer card featuring a Kelly Latimore icon of the Holy Family and an original prayer by Cameron Bellm.

Sponsored by the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States.
