What is Magis?

What is"Magis?" [pronounced "màh-gis"] It is a Latin word for "more," and is taken from the motto of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), "Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam" which is translated, "For the Greater Glory of God." Magis is a key element of Jesuit spirituality, inviting us to do more and to become more in the hope of offering greater service. The Jesuit tradition calls us in all matters to seek the greater good, the magis and become men and women for others.

“Given my responsibilities, my gifts and talents, my weaknesses, and limitations, how can I best embrace this desire to be a man or woman for others?”
