Our four Apostolic Priorities
Tipo de contenido
Conferencia / Ponencia
Based on an address he delivered at the conclusion of the Congregation of Procurators in Rome in October 1970, Pedro Arrupe issued the following letter to the provincials of the Society of Jesus. The letter articulates the Jesuits’ four “apostolic priorities,” as determined by their superior general. The four prioritized areas are, in order, theological reflection, the social apostolate, the apostolate of education, and the mass media apostolate. For each, Arrupe notes how he had established secretariates at the Jesuit Curia in Rome “developing and coordinating the activities necessary in each of those fields.” The opening of the text refers to a recently completed Sociological Survey of the Society, which began in 1966. .
