On Imaginative Prayer

Saint Ignatius of Loyola. He is a rockstar saint. He popularized something that is called imaginative prayer. We use our imagination to pray because God created our imagination to speak to us. That’s incredible! This Sunday’s Gospel is absolutely beautiful. It’s the Prodigal Son. Prodigal Son leaves the Father’s house, but he’s welcomed back.

Here is my invitation: use imaginative prayer. Imagine yourself in the Father’s house. What does it look like? For me? It looks like a hobbit hole. Something that Frodo Baggins or Bilbo Baggins would live in. I imagine myself in this house being loved by the Father.

Use imaginative prayer to be able to place yourself and imagine where you feel the safest and where you can feel the most loved. And let the Father love you and let the Father get to know you, and let yourself get to know the Father.
