Cannonball Moments

Drawing inspiration from St. Ignatius' response to his cannonball injury and subsequent reflection and conversion, we can consider our own response to life's unexpected moments. When cannonballs hit, we can lean on the grace of God. We can embrace His invitation to let ourselves be guided. We can be reborn in the aftermath, find purpose in what comes next and transform our cannonballs into a force for good.
