Here is a brief synopsis:
A detailed lesson plan and short video that highlights the spiritual pilgrimage of Ignatius Loyola; introduces students to the guidelines Ignatian Spiritual Conversation; and invites students to practice Ignatian Spiritual Conversation following a meditation on “The First Principle and Foundation” in “Showing the Way to God.”
A detailed lesson plan and short video that highlights the ministry of Saint Peter Claver with the enslaved Africans in Cartagena; invites us to recognize the marginalized in our world; and to consider seven pragmatic steps we can take in “Walking with the Excluded.”
A detailed lesson plan and short video that highlights student stories of adult accompaniment; invites students to reflect on their own experience; and share what they believe it means to be accompanied well with the adults in their community as a means for adult reflection and conversation on Ignatian formation in “Journeying with Youth.”
A detailed lesson plan and short video that highlights the ministry of Father Stanislaus Lourduswamy, SJ to the Adivasi people, invites us to reflect on our relationship to God, to others and to Creation; and consider the hopes and challenges in pursuing a viable and enduring earth and a more just world in “Caring for our Common Home.”
From 1 March, the videos and pedagogical materials are available on the General Curia, CLC and Educate Magis websites and accessible through whotobe.org. The page on Educate Magis is public and will be available throughout the year and, who knows, maybe for some years to come. Vocation, dream, call… these are timeless.
“Jesuits work in schools and in education because we believe in young people; through them a new future will be created” said Fr. John Dardis, the Director of Communications at the Jesuit General Curia. “Our third Apostolic Preference asks us to walk with them and accompany them in the creation of a hope-filled future.”
Our hope is that Who Do You Want to Be? will help them take a step in that direction!
Help us spread the news about this four-part video series to all those whose ministry is accompanying youth!
