Along with the calendar of Ignatian articles found here, posts on dotMagis this month will discover the theme of “folks for others.” This month marks the fiftieth anniversary of Fr. Pedro Arrupe’s well-known deal with during which he challenged Jesuit college alumni to kind what we now embrace as “folks for others.”

Fr. Joseph Tetlow, SJ, addresses the query, “How can we be folks for others impressed by the Gospel?”

He says, “Arrupe was making an attempt to name our consideration again to Jesus’ level: ‘You might be to like each other the best way I really like you.’ And the best way he liked us was giving himself completely.”

Fr. Tetlow’s books embrace Considering Jesus, Always Discerning, and You Have Called Me by My Name.
