Praying with art

Author: Fr Geoff Wheaton SJ

Publisher: Jesuits in Britain



Fr Geoff Wheaton SJ has put together a monthly reflection based on a painting in the hope of enabling deeper engagement with a particular passage of scripture.

“In the Spiritual Exercises, St Ignatius gives us the idea of meeting sacred scripture with one’s own life, mediated through Imaginative Contemplation. The aim of these reflections is to do this in tandem with pieces of art. Each month therefore, we will offer a painting in the hope that it will enable you to reflect more deeply on a particular passage of scripture. The idea is that you can return to the painting and scripture and discover more depth throughout the month.”
