Let us extend our continuous support and prayer for the preparation of CLC Asia Pacific Regional Assembly.
This Regional Assembly will be held in Taiwan on Thursday, 29th of January to Sunday, 1st of February 2105.
“This Assembly comes at an important time for CLC, the Church and us all. There is little need to recall the growing presence of our Church in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, CLC (through the world Exco) is seeking to establish a clearer identity and role for CLC at the regional levels. Finally, the interests of younger people must be a high priority for us being in a global region with such a high proportion of younger people. Especially, we are interested in bringing the special gift and graces of CLC to youth in our world today.”

Moved to Greater Love, a 9-week Lenten/Easter digital prayer experience beginning on Sunday, March 2 and concluding on Sunday, May 4. Each evening you will receive an email with a link to the following day’s prayer and reflection.
The nine U.S. Jesuit provincials who conceived of Moved to Greater Love describe it as “an invitation to magnanimity, silence, creativity and depth, calling all to consider how God’s love burns away fear and open us up to respond generously and wholeheartedly.”
The program is named for a phrase regarding spiritual graces from the Memoriale of Saint Peter Faber, a companion of Saint Ignatius Loyola and one of the early Jesuits. If you have additional questions regarding Moved to Greater Love, please visit www.Jesuits.org/greaterlove or email email@example.com.

It has been reported by many sources that as Cardinal he chose to use public transportation in an effort to live simply and also brought attention to many injustices in Argentina over the years.
Clearly, as time moves forward there will be much to learn about Pope Francis, but for the time being we thought we would share a few quotes that represent the importance the social mission of the Church has played in his ministry:
Speaking of contrast between the economically rich and poor, “Poor people who are persecuted for demanding work, and rich people who are applauded for fleeing from justice”. -August 2001 Speaking at the church dedicated to San Cayetano, the patron saint of work and bread (SOURCE: BBC News) Continue reading
