The world is our home,” wrote Fr. Jerónimo Nadal, one of St. Ignatius’ closest associates, referring to the vocation of Jesuits to travel wherever they could be of help to other people. Today that phrase takes on a different meaning – that this earth, placed by God in the hands of all humanity, is a shared inheritance, given to each of us to care for. Both aspects – being available to others, and taking responsibility for what we have been given – are essential parts of the Jesuit educational tradition.
I am proud to note that the work of the Ignatian Center exemplifies that way of being in the world and strives to bring to the attention of our SCU community and beyond the riches and the challenges of sharing our common home with the peoples of this world, now and in the generations to come. Together we can ignite the flame of Jesuit spirituality in our world - here, there, and everywhere.
