More Spiritual Wisdom from Our Jesuit Lenten Speakers
Each Lent the Midwest Jesuits host days of prayer and reflection for friends and benefactors (learn more). So many of our attendees have asked for “more” that we’ve pulled together additional resources from some of our Jesuit presenters.
We invite all to enjoy the videos, and, as always, we welcome your feedback and ideas. We will update this page as new materials become available.

Understanding the “Magis”
Fr. Lawrence Ober, SJ Art History Teacher, Saint Ignatius High School, Cleveland
April 18, 2018 — We as a Church commemorate the moment Jesus went into the wilderness of the desert because the Spirit was leading him (Mk 1:12). I find the image of the Spirit leading Jesus powerful and true for all of us. My vocation in the Society has been where I am able to see the Spirit leading me beyond my awareness in the moment.
