Effective Environment for Equipping: Natural Base for the Supernatural Action of Sanctifying Grace

  • The equipping of the priests of the Society of Ignatians occurs within an ecosystem designed to assist each individual to cooperate with the supernatural power of sanctifying grace in developing his God-given talents to the utmost.
  • Thus, the Ignatian configures himself to the priestly ideal, Alter Christus, Vir Dei.
  • Thus, he is empowered to fulfill his mission ‒ to extend the Kingdom of Christ ad majorem Dei gloriam.
