The Universal Mission

Open Your Heart To God

Welcome to Jesuit Conference South Asia

The missionary enterprise of the Jesuits in Asia is comprehensible only against the background of three foundational principles. The first two are from the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the order: Following Jesus as a Jesuit entails missionary outreach, and being a missionary implies cultural adaptation because Jesus adapted himself to the human condition. 

Our Mission

In the light of GC 36 (2016), the REGAE (Reorienting for Greater Apostolic Effectiveness) process underway in the Assistancy for the last five years and now with the promulgation of the Universal Apostolic Preferences (Feb, 2019), the key insights they offer will influence all of our lives and our mission. These three streams coming together form the horizon, point of reference, and the orientation from which we view, plan and evaluate all our apostolic preferences local and universal.

The four UAP’s and the single most important thrust of GC 36 and the mechanisms of spiritual conversation will be the guiding force for the Jesuits in South Asia for the coming decade. The four Universal Apostolic Preferences are:

  1. Walking with the Lord, by promoting Discernment and the Spiritual Exercises.
  2. Being in Solidarity with the Excluded.
  3. Caring for our Common Home.
  4. Accompanying the Youth.

The UAP’s have as their end goal, the threefold reconciliation of the Gospel, between God, Human Beings and Creation, as laid down by GC 36, D1. The means to realize this reconciliation is through Discernment, Networking and Collaboration.

"Find God In All Things"

Jesuits are best known in the fields of education (schools, colleges, universities, seminaries, theological faculties), intellectual research, and spiritual renewal. In South Asia , Jesuits run schools, universities and parishes and engage in missionary work, social justice, inter-religious dialogue, and other ‘frontier’ ministries.

 

 

Universal Apostolic Preferences

They are four working fields to which the Society of Jesus will pay special attention and in which it will invest a significant portion of its various resources over the next few years.
