“Jesuit Schools: a Living Tradition in the 21st Century – An Ongoing Exercise of Discernment, provides 10 key identifiers of Jesuit Schools. These are another important element to help in the reflection about what makes a Jesuit school today Jesuit, enabling us to navigate the challenge of keeping our identity to serve our mission of reconciliation and justice central to what we do and who we are.” Arturo Sosa SJ, Superior General, Rome, November 5, 2019 Feast of All Saints of the Society of Jesus
In this video published on the Feast of All Saints of the Society of Jesus (November 5th) Fr. General Arturo Sosa SJ presents a new document on education: “Jesuit Schools: A Living Tradition in the 21st Century – An Ongoing Exercise of Discernment”.
“Jesuit Education, as human history itself, is a living tradition that calls for open eyes, ears and hearts. This document wants to be an invitation to continue this conversation at all levels in our schools and school networks. We are, at ICAJE, even hesitant to call it a document since we want this to be a living text that can help us keep pace with our era in which fast change is the new normal, with all the positive and problematic aspects this entails.” José Mesa SJ. Worldwide Secretary for Education. Society of Jesus
In this video Fr. José Mesa SJ introduces the new document “A Living Tradition” and explains its three interrelated parts. The first part is a reflection on the foundational documents of Jesuit Education, the second part is the new global reality, the third part offers 10 Global Identifiers that should be present in any Jesuit School.
