Ignatius_Loyola_by_Francisco_Zurbaranweb - SUSCIPE - Anonymous Diary Blog

Suscipe (from the Latin word “receive”) is a short but powerful prayer attributed to St. Ignatius Loyola (pictured above). It can be found towards the end of his Spiritual Exercises, first published in the 16th century. He designed this work, still popular today both for retreats and private use, to bring souls closer to God through a series of meditations and prayers.

St. Ignatius, one of the outstanding figures of our faith, helped found the Society of Jesus in the 16th century to serve the pope and the Church through education and missionary work. This religious order, better known as the Jesuits, still exists today. Note the moving simplicity that underlies this “surrender” to God:

Take, O Lord, and receive my entire liberty, my memory, my understanding and my whole will. All that I am and all that I possess, Thou hast given me: I surrender it all to Thee to be disposed of according to Thy will. Give me only Thy love and Thy grace; with these I will be rich enough and will desire nothing more. Amen.
