In this paper I want you to do a reflection about the course and you NEED to see the assignment sheet so you can see what is the teacher is asking.
# I will provide you with the course description and the 3 books we used for this course, so you know what is it about. It is going to be down here and I will attach a copy for you.
# the third book is about Pope Frances he put it for us as a PDF, I will attach that for you, to get the overall from it or summery about it.
# You need to know things about me, I am NOT American and I am Muslims NOT Christan.
And I really learned a lot in this course which I find it interesting.
Catalogue Course Description:
The study of some of the basic Catholic beliefs concerning Jesus Christ, the Church, worship and sacrament through an Ignatian lens.
Detailed Course Description:
Specifically, the course will be divided into three sections: 1.) St. Ignatius and Ignatian spirituality 2.) Pedro Arrupe and other Jesuits 3.) Pope Francis and the Catholic Church. During the first section, students will read the Autobiography of St. Ignatius and selections from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignaitus. These documents will be the foundation for exploring theological questions in Christology, the sacraments of baptism and Eucharist, pilgrimage, discernment, conversion, and the relationship of God to the world. The second section will articulate how Vatican II influenced Pedro Arrupe, and how Arrupe attempted to connect the Council’s vision to his new role as Superior General of the Jesuits in 1965. The section will also explore his own spirituality, understanding of the Eucharist and his deep love for Jesus Christ. Considered by many to be a “second founder” of the Society of Jesus, Arrupe’s contributions will be viewed as a connection between Ignatius and Pope Francis. The third section will focus on the current Pope, Pope Francis, and will explore the process of papal election, the role of the Pope in the Church, and the effects of Pope Francis upon the Church thus far in his pontificate.
