Join Jesuits in prayer during Lent & Easter

 |  NCR Today

The Jesuits of the United States have launched an online communal prayer experience to which they are inviting all of their friends and colleagues.

"Moved to Greater Love," the prayer and reflection experience, was designed for Jesuits and apostolic partners but is open to all who want to participate. "MTLG is an invitation to Jesuits and all involved in Jesuit ministries to ask for the graces of gratitude, spiritual freedom, vision, and joy during the Pascal season," explained Jesuit Father Thomas H. Smolich, president of the Jesuit Conference USA. A two-week period will be devoted to each grace.

Daily prayer materials are available at, or by signing up for daily emails
