On behalf of JRS I would like to express our deep sadness that Paul cannot be anymore among us. At the same time we are very grateful for the encouragement he gave Jesuit Commons and JRS to launch a project for higher education at the margins in refugee camps. We try to carry on the great spirit and idea of Paul and to bring the best of the Universities of the Society of Jesus to the poor and people at the margins, such as refugees. It was this great idea he supported and presented to all 180 Institutions of Higher Education in Mexico at the meeting. In his honor and encouraged by his example we carry on the mission. May Paul accompany it from a higher position. Peter Balleis SJ, JRS International Director
