I discovered pray-as-you-go through the iTunes Podcasts recently. I once belonged to the Christian Life Community, but haven't been involved with CLC for nearly 8 years. I have really missed going through the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises regularly. What a wonderful way to begin the day as I stand crammed like a sardine in the New York subways! Thank you for making this available and I am certain to share it with all my friends! God bless as you continue this wonderful work!
Hello from a Canadian living in Beijing. What a wonderful discovery I made last year during Lent. I use Sacred Space regularly and your website was mentioned in one of the newsletters so I went and checked it out. At that time you were only going to do the project during Lent. How thankful I am that you continued on. Every weekend I download onto my iPod and then listen to your podcast as I am going to work. Thank you for your ministry.
I'm an engineer by profession, living and working outside Los Angeles. A web search on Jesuit communities in an effort to locate a friend of mine, a Jesuit priest, led me to several related websites and consequently to yours. It was a momentous find. Here in the States we don't have anything like it. Every weekend I rush to download your weekly program. I convert the MP3 downloads to AAC format to play them on my iPod. (MP3 format is fine, but I go for sound quality.) I listen to your meditations daily, before going to work or after work, at home or in my car. I make it a habit to find a quiet moment during the day where I can sit and listen to the daily meditation. They help me get in the right frame of mind to face every brand new day with its highs and lows. I wish there were also meditations for Saturdays and Sundays too. Your musical selections are great. They really show your good taste. I love Gregorian chants, but I've learned to like the other non-traditional works. (I bought a Keur Moussa CD. It's amazing I've gone this far!) I truly enjoy and appreciate your sharing this treasure - meditation, with the public. Keep up the good work and many thanks for sharing the Jesuit tradition!
I heard about Pray-as-you-go looking for catholic websites and immediately I began to hear the daily prayings. It was amazing! Here in the Netherlands, it's difficult to find a church and people with whom you can share your faith. For me this website, Pray-as-you-go is now a friend, I always listen in my iPod while I'm cycling, or when I need time for meditation. It's really helpful for me, hear the readings, hear beautiful melodies, feel the presence of God! Thank you for this brillant idea, you are helping a lot. It could be nice to have the meditations of Saturdays and Sundays too.
I first heard about Pray As You Go while on retreat at Loyola Hall almost a year (!) before I first used it. I decided to subscribe to PAYG after my car was written off in an accident and I found myself catching the bus to and from work each day. It's a marvellous resource. The bells and the well chosen music and guidance creates a sense of stillness in my soul and allows the words of the Gospel to sink deeply in. I usually listen to each day's podcast two or 3 times - always on the way to work and last thing at night when I'm in bed, and sometimes at lunchtime or on the way home from work too. It's helped me to make my days more focused on God. I'm such a convert that for Lent this year I've been sending my friends CDs of PAYG so that they can use it too!
