You may know that many Jesuits experience an impactful, inspiring and at times terrifying experience of being sent on a “pilgrimage.” Young novices with little money or direction are sent into the world to encounter the holiness of the people they meet, directed and protected only by their faith and the Holy Spirit. With life’s comforts removed, these young men in formation are placed in a strange land, and like St. Ignatius on his journey to Jerusalem, they encounter powerful experiences and formative lessons. Jesuits are taught experientially, though it may seem random at the time, that God is living in the intense care and generosity of strangers encountered along the proverbial and literal road...
St. Ignatius envisioned the world as a place where Christ loved and served, a place of grace and of giving life to others. SLUH embraces a global education model that illuminates Ignatius’ vision while providing students the tools to succeed in a diverse, interdependent and rapidly changing world – in our own metropolitan area and thousands of miles away.
Learning, prayer and discernment are complemented by a healthy dose of adventure for novices as they prepare to take vows in the Society of Jesus. Since the late 1960s, many Jesuit provinces have incorporated a month-long pilgrimage as part of the Novitiate, the first stage of becoming a Jesuit. While each pilgrimage is unique, they’re all distinguished by total reliance on God through “genuine faith and intense love.”
When St. Ignatius wrote his autobiography, he reflected on his life and realized it was something far deeper and more meaningful than a journey. He was a pilgrim, and his entire life had been a pilgrimage – a revelation from which we can all learn.
