Loving Thy Neighbor

In two weeks, the SCU class of 2018 will be leaving behind 19 years of the predictable pattern of year-in-year-out education and stepping into the unknown world of employment and career. It is a bracing transition, but one that is necessary in order for students to put their Jesuit education to work, with and for others. Those “others” are many - from our co-workers to people in distant countries.
 
The parable of the Good Samaritan was Jesus’ response to the question “Who is my neighbor?” Loving our neighbors means thinking of others (especially those who are different and distant from us) as we do our own family, and treating them with a practical and active love. The Jesuit education we seek to foster through all the programs of the Ignatian Center is also practical and active, aimed at building up God’s spirit of neighborliness in all things and among all people - here, there, and everywhere.
 
Rev. Dorian Llywelyn, S.J.
