Reflecting on the 'Ignatian Year' in the wake of the pandemic

June 24, 2021

Seeing all things new - reflections on the 'Ignatian Year' theme after the pandemic. Tuesday 13th July at 7.30pm on Zoom and Facebook Live.

The Edinburgh Jesuit Centre is delighted to announce that the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Fr Arturo Sosa SJ, will join an online audience on Tuesday 13th July at 7.30pm to explore the 'Ignatian Year' and 'seeing all things new in Christ' in relation to a post-Covid society.

Fr Sosa was elected the 31st Superior General on the 14th October 2016 and became the first Latin American to lead the Jesuits. In his first address, he said that Jesuits ‘should look for alternatives to overcome poverty, inequality and oppression, while collaborating with those inside and outside of the Church”.

In 2019, after guiding Jesuits and lay associates through two years of discernment, Fr General announced four priorities that would guide the Society’s decisions for the next decade. These are:

• Teaching discernment through the Spiritual Exercises

• Walking with the poor in their quest for dignity and justice

• Accompanying young people in the creation of a hope-filled future

• Collaborating in the care for our common home

Pope Francis declared these priorities to be very much in line with those of his pontificate.

The Edinburgh Jesuit Centre will also be livestreaming on Facebook:
