At the end of the meeting, the Committee for Ignatian Formation, recently formed at Father General’s request, had the opportunity to present its mission, its plan and the activities it intends to animate or promote. A key element: the presentation of a “Coordinator of Ignatian Initiatives” at the Curia, Father Ferdi Mendoza.
The Committee is also responsible for the preparation of the Eucharistic celebrations to which all those who work in the Curia, Jesuits and lay people, are welcome. And appropriately, the assembly was invited to continue the meeting in the Saint Francis Borgia Chapel for a Eucharist in the spirit of Christmas. Father General presided and gave the homily, which highlighted the theme of Hope that we have at this time of year. He took the opportunity to also mention the many occasions we had in the Society of Jesus during 2019 to nourish our hope.
