"White is Black, Black is White" Leader Visits U.S. Feb 13-19

from Endr Times:

The hand is quicker than the eye... .... As they say in the world of the Magicians.

So, while we are 'engrossed' with the minute to minute developments in Egypt:

Father General

Visit to America. Father General will take part in the meeting of the Jesuit Conference USA and visit the Jesuits and Jesuit ministries of Jamaica (a dependent Region of New England) February 13-19. Every two years Father General attends a meeting of the Provincials to get first-hand information about the mission of the USA Assistancy and to present his perspective and vision regarding the universal Society. In addition to their usual and ongoing work for promoting the apostolic live lihood of the men and ministries of the USA Assistancy, the Provincials will discuss implementation of two parts of the Assistancy's strategic discernment plan: communications and vocation promotion. Father General's visit to the Jamaica Region will include an opportunity to visit some of the Society's ministries, meet about 100 of the Society's collaborators and benefactors, and join the Jesuits of Jamaica for an evening of prayer and conversation.


From the Curia

From January 31 - February 3, meeting at the Curia Offices in Rome were the members of the Permanent Interprovincial Commission, known as CIP, which advices on the government of the interprovincial Roman houses. Numerous themes were discussed and studied. Topics discussed included: the context of the Mission of the DIR (concerning the international houses in Rome), with the participation of rectors of the Pontifical Gregorian University, the Pontifical Biblical Institute and the Pontifical Oriental Institute; the community life of the Jesuit professors and scholastics of the Roman houses. The discussion was also attended by numerous
members of various communities in collaboration in the "Consortium" which includes the three above mentioned Papal institutions, as well as discussion, with the deans and faculty of the Pontifical Gregorian University, regarding research professors to replace the more senior members of the faculty, the move of these senior Jesuits to their respective Provinces, and other related topics.
