UAPS AFTER 4 YEARS: 2 UNEXPECTED LESSONS
In February of 2019 Pope Francis missioned the Society of Jesus with the Universal Apostolic Preferences (UAPs). What have we learned after living the UAPs for four years? Listen to Fr. John Dardis, Father General’s Assistant for Apostolic Planning, as he reflects on the UAPs.
Universal Apostolic Preferences
The Universal Apostolic Preferences are the fruit of a process of discernment lasting almost two years. All Jesuits were invited to take part and in addition our mission partners. It concluded with a confirmation from Pope Francis in a special meeting with Fr General Arturo Sosa.
The Preferences give a horizon, a point of reference to the whole Society of Jesus. They capture our imaginations and awaken our desires. They unite us in our mission. The new Preferences are four areas vital for our world today. The Society of Jesus will pay special attention to them in the next ten years. We invite you to learn more and take action with us! We want to make a Gospel difference.
