Symposion on discernment in Warsaw.

During the meeting with Pope Francis on the WYD in Cracow, polish Jesuits heard that Pope had one strong recommendation – to teach the discernment. He said ''The discernment process is one of the biggest gifts from God to the Society, that is why Jesuits should share with this especially with other religious and priests''.

Following the Pope’s Message, scholastics from the Jesuit Faculty of Theology in Warsaw (The Collegium Bobolanum) organized a symposium dedicated for the students of diocesan seminars and another religious institutes. This meeting was a great opportunity for common reflection about Pope Francis’ teaching.

The main subject of the symposium ‘Understanding Pope Francis’.

The Symposium was divided into four topics and four groups of attendees. A scholastic was responsible for each group. The college invited two experts, for each specific field:

  • Poverty and Social Activity (fr. Jarosław Mikuczewski, SJ - Ignatianum University in Kraków, Michał Górski – The Community of Sant'Egidio)
  • Spirituality (Wiktoria Wróblwska - The Warsaw School of Economics, fr. Tadeusz Kotlewski, SJ – The Collegium Bobolanum)
  • Management of Changes in the Church (fr. Damian Wiącek - The Pontifical University of John Paul II in Cracow, fr. Stanisław Nowak, OP)
  • Amoris Laetitia (Zbigniew Nosowski – ‘Więź’ quarterly, fr. Mirosław Tykfler – ‘Przewodnik Katolicki’ magazine).

At the beginning of the symposium all the students attended the general meeting. Then an  introduction for each subject (20-30min) took place and there was time for discussion . After lunch all students attended workshops - divided into four groups. This  was the most crucial part of the symposium. After 3 hours, the participants met once again and concluded workshops. At the end of the meeting there was a common Eucharist in the chapel of the Jesuit college, diner and a social evening together with the Jesuit community.

At the symposium participated together 50 people from the ten diocesan seminars and religious institutes.
