    Discerning Future apostolic preferences based on founding documents

    Discerning Universal Apostolic Preferences for the next ten years and a review of key Jesuit sources were major themes of a June meeting at the Jesuit General curia. A full day was spent in a spiritual and reflective reading of the Formula of the Institute - the founding document of the Society of Jesus. Father José García de Castro, a Spanish Jesuit and an expert in Ignatian Spirituality and in the Jesuit Constitutions, guided a series of meditations and reflections. The Consiglio then connected the concepts and experiences of Ignatius in the 16th century to contemporary times. The Formula of the Institute speaks about ministries of reconciliation as being one of the foundational themes; and indeed the word 'reconciliation' has been a major focus of recent General Congregations.

    NICARAGUA: Jesuits call for a peaceful resolution to political crisis

    The Jesuits of Central America are calling for a peaceful and negotiated resolution to the political crisis in Nicaragua. In a recent statement, the Society of Jesus in Nicaragua affirms that a peaceful outcome of the crisis is the unanimous wish of the population, which is claiming for democracy, freedom and justice. The Jesuits point out that over 100 Nicaraguans have already been killed for supporting such a constitutional and ethical demand. The Society of Jesus in Nicaragua says it is convinced the nation is still in time to try and avoid further radicalism, more bloodshed, and more pain. Read more...
