• Chinese Jesuit Province launches prayer podcast

    People praying in Chinese now have a new prayer resource with the launch of a daily prayer podcast by the Chinese Jesuit Province. The audio podcasts are based on Sacred Space, which was begun by the Irish Jesuits and is today the world’s leading interactive guided prayer site with the daily prayers available in more than 20 languages. The Chinese language version of Sacred Space has been available since 2014. On May 2, the Chinese Jesuit Province launched the podcast service, which combines narration of the daily Sacred Space prayer in Mandarin with soothing music to draw the person into contemplative stillness. Each episode or prayer session has six stages and each stage is designed as a meditation on God’s presence in our lives.

  • The Jesuits

Sometimes a Jesuit will live alone because his work or study places him at a distance from a local community, but he remains attached to a larger community. Jesuits share all things in common, owning nothing in their own name. Jesuits derive strength for their ministries from their relationship with Jesus in prayer, as well as from the mutual support, understanding and encouragement they receive from their brother Jesuits.
