Central America, from the Ignatian perspective
Central America will be the host for MAG+S in 2019, and the Central American Province of the Society of Jesus will welcome the young pilgrims who will arrive from different parts of the world. Between January 10-11, 2019, the participants will arrive- from all five continents- to the countries that comprise the Central American Province: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. It is the first time that MAG+S will be hosted in a region of six countries, which creates an organizational challenge. However, it also amplifies the experience that will let participants get to know the sociocultural, spiritual, ecological, culinary, and intellectual richness of Central America: a region with profound hope and which, in the midst of the current challenges that it faces, is presented to the world as a geographic area that “has indigenous blood, and still prays to Jesus Christ and still speaks Spanish,” as the Nicaraguan poet, Rubén Darío, described it.
