Universal Apostolic Preferences are the fruit of a process of discernment lasting almost two years. All the Jesuits  and the mission partners took part in the process. This process has been concluded by  confirmation from Pope Francis in a special meeting with Fr General Arturo Sosa. The Preferences give a horizon, a point of reference to the whole Society of Jesus. The new Preferences are four areas vital for our world today. The Society of Jesus will pay special attention to them in the next ten years. These are the 4 preferences that will be in effect for 10 years.
1. PROMOTING DISCERNMENT AND THE SPIRITUAL EXERCISES
2. WALKING WITH THE EXCLUDED
3. CARING FOR OUR COMMON HOME
4. JOURNEYING WITH YOUTH
