    Recently, I had an enlightening conversation with friends about how we envision God. It’s a really interesting question, because how we imagine God determines how we relate to God. For instance, if I see God as an old, bearded man on a cloud, I will find it pretty difficult to relate to him. I’m not really well-versed in talking with old men who live on clouds and, in fact, I don’t know anyone who lives [...]

    When Loyola informed Portuguese Jesuits that “no commonplace achievement will satisfy the great obligations you have of excelling,” he created heroic expectations that could be met only through change and innovation on a dramatic scale.

    There is a difference between knowledge and wisdom, between someone who’s a brain and someone to whom we bring our pain. Someone wise does know which things can’t be changed and which can, and he or she is at peace with that. The wise person accepts things as they are, accepts his or her position in the universe: far better than a rock or a carrot or a pig, far less than God. Science is [...]

    We pray this month for young people gathering for World Youth Day in Panama and the Magis Program organized by the Society of Jesus ahead of World Youth Day. The Ignatian Magis Central America event opened on January 11, 2019, with young pilgrims undertaking different Ignatian experiences of social action, art and culture, history, and more. Pilgrims are encouraged to reflect with the daily Examen on their experiences. As the youth gathered in Central America [...]
