Responding to the Mission

Being a Jesuit means being open to following Christ no matter where Our Lord may be. While in studies, each Jesuit is asked to respond to the Call of Christ by not only studying, but also being involved with those most in need. After first studies, a Jesuit is missioned by his provincial to a specific work to help those who are powerless respond to the Spirit in their lives. 

So, how have those who are in formation, from Novitiate through Theology studies, responded to Christ’s call?  Below are some personal reflections that will help you understand how a particular Jesuit has responded to Christ’s call in his current work.
