BUFFALO, NY - Canisius celebrated the Christian season of Advent with a campus-wide conversation about “magis,” a key element of Jesuit spirituality.
The myMAGIS initiative asked the college community to reflect on how they experience Ignatian ideals in their daily lives. Participants then shared their thoughts in words and images, which were posted in virtual and public places across campus.
Magis is the Latin term for “more” and a Jesuit philosophy that maintains when individuals do more for Christ, they therefore do more for others.
The myMAGIS initiative began on December 1, which is the start of the Advent season, and continues through December 24. A second observance will also run through the 2014 Lent and Easter seasons.
