This talk explores the second question God asks humanity in the sacred scriptures: who told you that? It considers the First Week of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, which centers around God’s boundless love for us. It invites us to consider sin, and the ways that God’s love and mercy help us to move beyond our sinfulness and into greater freedom. 

Suggested texts:

  • Psalm 51
  • Genesis 3:10-13
  • John 8:1-11
  • Romans 7:13-23

Points for reflection:

  • In what ways do you miss the mark regarding how you want to live?
  • Who or what supply the voices in your life that lead you away from God?
  • How have you felt God’s love and mercy present to you, even in the midst of difficulty and struggle?
  • What tools do you have that help you carry on in the face of hardship and the recognition of sin?
