This year the tertianship group in Dublin consists of 6 members. We gathered for the first time on 21 September 2020. We will be together until the end of May 2021.
During this time we will share with each other our experiences of our jesuit vocations through the spiritual exercises, reflecting upon our foundation texts, sharing our stories of ministry, and through different ministries.
We completed our 30-day Ignatian Spiritual Exercises, a beautiful journey with the Lord, on Dec 20 2020. After two days of brief sharing on our experiences, we are now preparing to celebrate Christmas.
With deep gratitude, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your great support and prayers for us during our Exercises. May the good Lord continue to bless you all, and grant you and your family a joyful grace-filled Christmas and a happy New Year.
Dear brothers and sisters, friends and family members, We the Tertians at the European Tertianship in Dublin kindly ask for your prayers as we make our month long retreat, following the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, from 19 November to 20 December 2020. Thank you very much and be assured of our own prayers for you all during this blessed time.
The week began with our reflections on the previous week.
We then moved into a beautiful round of sharing by each tertian on his life story. Each person was allotted an hour to speak, and the sharing could be done in creative ways. The sharings were frank and heartfelt. It was a very enriching exercise.
We then moved into a round of sharing (for half an hour) something about each of our provinces. This too turned out to be an informative and enlightening exercise.
One evening after supper, some of the guys watched parts 5 and 6 of the movie – Teresa de Jesus.
We are now in close proximity of the month’s retreat. All seem to be geared towards making the retreat a special moment of grace.
