Superior Talk

To help the University celebrate its 175th anniversary, Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, S.J., superior general of the Society of Jesus, visited campus on Oct. 3. After flying in from Brazil, he gave a talk on “The Service of Faith in a Religiously Pluralistic Society” during the afternoon session of Xavier’s sixth annual Academic Day celebration. “Interreligious dialogue is one of the most powerful responses to the global cultural malaise,” he said. “It will take the cooperation of the world’s religions to address adequately dehumanizing cultural forces.” It was the Superior General’s second visit to Xavier.
