Love in Action

As summer begins to fade, the SCU campus springs back to life. The energy and hope our new and returning students bring is palpable and contagious. In this year of many changes and new beginnings, I’m particularly hopeful about a new Ignatian Center venture in the Greater Washington area of San Jose. Putting the entrepreneurial spirit of Silicon Valley to work in a low-income neighborhood is a great example of the practical spirit characteristic of Jesuit education.  
St. Ignatius’ own phrase “cura de ánimas,” is often translated as “care for the whole person.” The economic and financial aspects of life are as essential to full human flourishing as emotional and spiritual dimensions. Love, Ignatius says, is more about acts than words. It involves mutual sharing, always wanting to give to the other. SCU students working together with neighborhood residents in promoting business skills promises to be a venture of mutual learning and teaching, which is more than the sum of its parts.
Through this new partnership, the Ignatian Center continues to put love into action - here, there, and everywhere.
