Mater Societatis Iesu
This text was written to be inserted into a brochure for Jesuits, introducing the “Saints and Blessed of the Society of Jesus”; for the 22 April we find “Mary, Mother of the Society of Jesus”. Father Arrupe reminds us in these lines of the extent to which Mary is present at the different stages of the spiritual journey of Ignatius of Loyola, in the life of the Society of Jesus and in the itinerary of each Jesuit.
