After Election: Tasks Ahead
A Jesuit General Congregation [GC] addresses tasks after its initial ones. When a general superior resigns a congregations first task is accepting the resignation; the second is electing a successor. The election follows the plan Ignatius devised. Under the leadership of Fr. Arturo Sosa GC36 will address matters of mission, internal governance and the state of the Society of Jesus.
The contours of those matters reflect the “signs of the times”; they may well reflect the interests of Fr. Sosa. Among them are: Jesuit spirituality; collaboration with others; solidarity with the most vulnerable; migrants and refugees; reconciliation and dialogue; and the intellectual apostolate.
