"To keep ourselves right in all things, we ought to hold fast to this principle: What seems to me to be white, I will believe to be black if the hierarchical Church thus determines it. For we believe that between Christ our Lord, the Bridegroom, and the Church, His Spouse, there is the one same Spirit who governs and guides us for the salvation of our souls..." - Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius [365]

Migration & Urbanization - Jesuit Concern

The Scolastics and Brothers-in-formation of the Society of Jesus in the East Asia and Oceania Assitancy held its conference in Melaka, Malaysia last 21 December 2006 - 03 January 2007. The theme of the said conference was Migration and Urbanization, in the context of our assistancy. The conference was indeed very educational for us and provided us with an unforgettable experience living with Migrants and refugees.

Below are some pictures taken during the conference, including all the trips and tours.

The Society of Jesus continues to work for and with the Migrants, Itinerants, and refugees around our assistancy. We do hope that our exposures and inputs will spur us further in our zeal to be of service to all, a service of the Faith that does justice!
