Editor’s note: Throughout July, we’re hosting 31 Days with St. Ignatius, a month-long celebration of Ignatian spirituality. In addition to the calendar of Ignatian articles found here, posts on dotMagis this month will explore the theme of “people for others.” This month marks the 50th anniversary of Fr. Pedro Arrupe’s famous address in which he challenged Jesuit school alumni to form what we now embrace as “people for others.”
Fr. Joseph Tetlow, SJ, addresses the question, “How can we be people for others inspired by the Gospel?”
He says, “Arrupe was trying to call our attention back to Jesus’ point: ‘You are to love one another the way I love you.’ And the way he loved us was giving himself entirely.”
We only have a few days left in 31 Days with St. Ignatius. Enjoy today’s featured piece, Confetti All Around by Eric Clayton. Then use the hashtag #31DayswithIgnatius on your favorite social media channels to share how Ignatian spirituality speaks to you.
