The Jesuit Magis pilgrimage and immersion experience is underway in Spain and Portugal, where young people between 18 and 30 will visit many important St. Ignatius of Loyola sites.
The pilgrimage precedes World Youth Day, which begins August 15 in Madrid. Pilgrims from all over the world are attending these gatherings of Catholic youth and young adults to enrich and share the common bond of their Catholic faith. Here, we are sharing a collection of videos capturing their experiences and those of their U.S. Jesuit chaperones.
To help Jesuits throughout the U.S. to prepare for the new translation of the Roman Missal, Jesuit Father John Baldovin, Professor of Historical & Liturgical Theology at Boston College's School of Theology and Ministry, was asked to give a presentation explaining the historical background of the Roman Missal, with a brief overview of the changes in this translation along with some ideas for faithful ministers of the church to engage this new translation responsibly and use it as well as possible. His video presentation, The New Roman Missal: Challenge & Opportunity, appears in five parts.
