Each day of Lent The Ignatian Spirituality Centre (ISC) in Glasgow is offering Bible readings, poems and other material for you to pray in your own home.
The material offered takes the shape of St Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises.
Retreats are asked to sign up on line (www.lentretreat.uk) if they wish to complete the retreat which is free.
The ISC also suggest that those praying with material might like to meet weekly to introduce some of the themes of the retreat, share your journey and help you with your prayer.
This is not compulsory for the retreat but would help people get much more out of it. If you want to join a local group contact www.lentretreat.uk directly.
Visit the website to view the material and sign up at www.lentretreat.uk.

Pray as you go: pray-as-you-go.org
Pray as you go is a daily prayer session, designed to go with you wherever you go, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc.
A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a ‘Thought for the Day’, a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer.
Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection.
Our aim is to help you to:
- become more aware of God’s presence in your life
- listen to and reflect on God’s word
- grow in your relationship with God
It is produced by Jesuit Media Initiatives, with material written by a number of Jesuits, both in Britain and further afield, and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola. Although the content is different every day, it keeps to the same basic format.
App for your phone

The Seven Last Words As Jesus hung on the cross, he uttered seven last words of great meaning to those who contemplate his passion and death.
Stations of the Cross The Stations of the Cross is a Lenten devotion that offers witness to Jesus’ Passion and Death. At each station we use our senses and our imagination to reflect prayerfully upon Jesus’ suffering, Death, and Resurrection, and to simply experience the visual images to reflect on Christ’s love for us. Version for adults and children.
