Jesuit Superior General Adolfo Nicolás says that Ignatian spirituality offers a path to personal change that can lead to social change. “If people don’t change, it doesn’t matter how much the system changes,” he said. He added that systems and institutions have changed in many respects, but violence and injustice “seem to be on the rise.”
Fr. Nicolás made the comment in an interview about Pope Francis. He said that the new pope is “one hundred percent Jesuit” and that his style “has up until now never been seen.” (Go here to watch it on YouTube.)
Really appreciate this great teaching
Thus spoke India’s Mahatma Gandhi: “Be the Change you want to see in the world”.
