Jesuits Magazine Spring 2018

 
Dear Friends,

As we celebrated the anniversary of the election of Pope Francis on March 13, we could only imagine the surprise of St. Ignatius in heaven on that amazing day. After all, our Founder intended a minima compania—a little company— as he liked to call us, to serve the Church under the Roman Pontiff, never imagining that one of our number would one day be the pope! 

From the moment of his election, Pope Francis has been inviting the Church to practice a faith that does justice. By word and example, the pope has touched people from all faiths and from all corners of the earth. He invites us to be the Good Samaritan—never to turn a blind eye—to serve the poor and the less fortunate, to be merciful to others and to pray ardently for peace. 

Having just marked Pope Francis’ fifth anniversary, we focus this issue of JESUITS magazine on stories that speak about the ideals and objectives that are near and dear to our Holy Father—welcoming refugees, providing support for the less fortunate among us (especially for our youth), promoting vocations to lives of love and service, and using various media to reach out to, connect with and inspire people from all over the world. 

Spring is always a time for renewal, hope and gratitude. Please continue to pray for us, for our many ministries and for our Jesuit pope. As always, we thank you for your ongoing support of our Jesuit life and mission.

Sincerely in Christ,
