Prayer: Jesuit Constitutions

The contemporary mission of the Society of Jesus
is the service of faith and the promotion in society
of that justice of the Gospel that is the embodiment
of God's love and saving mercy.

General Congregation #34, decree 2, number 3

We should recall that mediocrity has no place in Ignatius'
world view; he demads leaders in service to others in
building the Kingdom of God in the market place of
business and ideas, of service, of law and justice,
of economics, theology and all areas of human life.
He urges us to work for the greater glory of God
because the world desperately needs men and
women of competence and conscience who generously
give of themselves for others.

Peter-Hans Kolvenback, S.J., former Superior General
