The Jesuit emphasis on promotion of justice for the poor and oppressed is not a substitute for earlier works, but a constitutive, central element of all Jesuit ministries, including teaching, scholarship, preaching and pastoral work, and Ignatian spirituality.
Thomas Worcester, SJ
Unlike the sacramental ministry of diocesan priests, which aims primarily to sustain the existing community of faith, the sacramental work of Jesuits is oriented toward an outward-looking apostolic mission, that of bringing Christ to the world. This apostolic orientation does not exclude parish work by Jesuits… but it is no accident that Jesuit parishes tend to be located in needy areas, consistent with our apostolic commitment to solidarity with the least.
William R. Rehg, SJ
