On Feb. 19, Fr. Arturo Sosa, S.J., the superior general of the Society of Jesus, presented four universal apostolic preferences in a letter to Jesuits worldwide. The priorities are meant to guide the life and work of the Jesuits over the next 10 years, and are approved by Pope Francis.
Find all four preferences in this article from America Magazine. The first priority is “To show the way to God through discernment and the Spiritual Exercises.” An upcoming retreat on campus offers an opportunity reflect on this objective.
The “Lenten Retreat in Daily Life” is a free six-week Campus Ministry retreat, which takes place March 4 through April 15 and invites undergraduate and graduate students to learn and grow in Ignatian Spirituality practices.
With a commitment of 15 minutes of prayer a day as well as a weekly meeting with a spiritual companion or director, this retreat offers students a unique opportunity for guided prayer and reflection.
As a Jesuit Institution, we often look to St. Ignatius of Loyola as an example for spirituality. A person who struggled and worked hard at figuring out where God was calling him in his own life, Ignatius clearly asked the question, “What does God want from me?” on a regular basis. Today, we are armed with his rich spiritual practices developed through his own spiritual growing pains.
We invite you to bring your own unique spiritual life and your relationship with God to the Lenten Retreat in Daily Life. More information and registration is online.
