Abstract: It has the aim to be a simple opportunity to experience an inclusive, open to everyone, way to be Church; a space where meet for praying once a month in a parish of Rome, animated by Jesuits (San Saba); a place where joining up, sharing with other people his own spiritual experience starting from the personal state: civil or religious, elderly or youth, homosexual or hetero, single or married, cohabitee or divorcee…
All that starting from the meditation of the Word of God, according to the method of Saint Ignatius. A method that helps to relieve from prejudices on God, on himself and on the others, and to understand the voice of God in the core feelings.
The monthly meetings last approximately one hour and an half, on three moments: Lectio of a Holy Bible’s fragment, personal meditation, sharing in small groups. 30-40 persons regularly participate.
