Amen. Want Fries With That?

The Jesuits who bring us Sacred Space are offering daily 10-minute podcast meditations that you can listen to as you commute. It's called "Pray-as-you-go":

Pray-as-you-go is a daily prayer session, designed for use on portable MP3 players, to help you pray whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc.

Lasting around ten minutes (never more than 12 minutes), it uses music and scripture to help you become aware of God's presence in your life, to listen to and reflect on God's word, and to grow in your relationship with God.

It is produced by Jesuit Media Initiatives, with material written by a number of British Jesuits and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola.

Although the content is different every day, it will always follow more or less the same format:

1. Bells - the call to prayer
2. Opening music with a few words of introduction
3. Scripture for the day
4. Questions for personal reflection
5. Repeat of the scripture reading
6. Final reflection
7. Glory be

The accents are nice to hear too!

Darn Jesuits, what will they think of next?

After reading this, I immediately subscribed in iTunes. It's great for me, since I can't be at a computer every day for Sacred Space.

I'm hoping it will encourage more dedication in my prayer life.

Mark--

thanks so much for this tip! I already use Sacred Space with some regularity, but this looks like a great additional resource.

Oh, and your readers who're fans of the Litury of the Hours might enjoy the Praystation Portable podcast: http://www.sqpn.com/scripts/praystation.php

Both the xml feed and a "one-click" iTunes subscription option can be found there.
