    Learn how to discern the signs of the Lord in order to collaborate in the reconciliation of the world – Fr. Sosa
    (18-Jul-2018)

    Father General Arturo Sosa has urged Jesuits and collaborators to be attentive to the signs of the Lord's actions in order to collaborate in the process of reconciliation of men with one another, with humanity, with creation and with God himself. Father General made the remarks during the Eucharist celebrated in the city of Cochabamba
    He noted that Pope Francis insists on the need for discernment in the Church, recognizing that discernment offers the possibility of "understanding where the Lord is sending us a message" and to review as an apostolic body whether we have developed this sensitivity.
    Fr. Sosa recalled that after General Congregation 36 the Society of Jesus is in a process of common discernment of apostolic preferences. With this discernment, with this sensitivity to grasping the signs of the Lord, it will be possible to see how it is possible to collaborate with the Ignatian charism and to identify the resources with which it is available.
    "That is what we ask the Lord today, to cultivate in us a sensitivity to the signs of his action, to increase our faith and to invite us to contribute. Let us work together to ensure that human beings freely accept this path. And that we develop the capacity to discern so that we may follow the Holy Spirit," he said.
    In this sense, from the spiritual heritage of St. Ignatius Loyola, and from the entire apostolic heritage, the Superior General asked those attending the Eucharist to renew their desire to collaborate with the Lord in order to contribute to the reconciliation of the world, since by following his signs it is possible to "turn human history into a history of justice and peace guided by love".


    Fr Arturo Sosa, SJ to young Ignatians: “Choosing is an exercise in freedom.”
    (17-Jul-2018)

    Sixty-five young people of Ignatian charism from the Jesuit province of Bolivia had a meeting this Sunday with the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Fr. Arturo Sosa.
    Strengthen their spirituality and share the progress of the preparatory work for the Synod of Youth to be held in October 2018 and communicate their concerns to Fr. Arturo Sosa, SJ were part of the objective of this meeting.
    The young people expressed their desire to know how the Jesuits face the task of increasing the commitment of young people to the mission of the Society and of the Church in general.
    Fr. Arturo Sosa indicated that the Society should offer young people a path that appeals to freedom of choice, that is, that their work is to generate proposals that facilitate the choice of young people for a commitment to the mission of the Church.
    "Choosing is an exercise in freedom" the Jesuit Superior General told the young people.
    In this sense, it is essential to make it easier for young people to know the reality in which they live, to interpret it and to have a free choice through this reading. With this, Fr. Arturo Sosa SJ, indicated that the Society can only show ways, but not impose them.
    The young people will share for analysis in their respective works this and other themes that Father General shared with them such as the inclusion of people with sexual differences, citizen participation in political life, and the inclusion of young lay people who have completed a university degree in the works of the Society of Jesus.
    The participants of this meeting were young people of Ignatian charism who study or collaborate in schools, parishes or youth groups of the Province of Bolivia.


    Father General asks the media to report with love
    (17-Jul-2018)

    Santa Cruz 14 July 2018 - Father General of the Jesuits, Arturo Sosa, in his meeting with social communicators and journalists of the Society of Jesus this Saturday asked them to "report with love" and to always highlight the positive news, which builds, supports and serves as an example.
    Fr Sosa said that society is loaded with many tribulations and the media should seek to be a form of relief for it, because reporting the truth is a way of "loving and serving".
    The Jesuit said that communication with "truth and love" should be an example of communicators in general, but should be a daily practice for the media, journalists and communicators of the Society of Jesus.
    For the religious, being an example at this time is very important, because in the absence of references one chooses visions that do not agree with the reality of a country or a place, that is why he asked to be ready to face the challenge of social networks, where a message of love and truth must be presented every moment.
    According to Fr Sosa, social networking is a field for young people, so the Jesuit media must work hard to reach this audience. Journalists from the Fides Group, Aclo, Irfa, Fe y Alegría, Fides News Agency participated in this talk.
    Father General arrived in Bolivia last Friday and will remain until July 19. During this time, apart from the city of Santa Cruz, he will also visit the Chuiquitania and then move to the cities of Cochabamba and La Paz.
