Cura Personalis: How to Live the Jesuit Mission with Courage and Consolation

Fr. Barton Geger
Monday, September 17, 2018 - 7:30pm
Arrupe Auditorium

St. Ignatius Loyola and the early Jesuits did not use the term cura personalis (“care of the person”), but the meanings that Jesuits and friends commonly give to it today resonate deeply with the saint’s characteristic values. Fr. Geger will show how cura personalis  provides practical guidance to those who wish to dedicate themselves to “the greater glory of God,” the heart of the Jesuit mission.
