These words are a line from St. Ignatius’s prayer:
Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your will.
MAGIS is meant to prepare you for the experience of World Youth Day, which is going to be held in Poland in 2016. The official slogan of WYD 2016 is “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy” (Matthew 5:7). To be merciful is to have a generous heart – one that gives and never counts the cost. Such was the heart with which the Holy Virgin embraced the word of God and responded to His calling. Such is the heart of Christ, who is the image of our Lord’s fatherly love. Such is the heart which the Holy Spirit wishes to mold in each and every one of us.
