February, 2022 – This Lent, the Jesuits of the USA Central and Southern Province invite you to deepen your prayer through the lens of the Society of Jesus’ four Universal Apostolic Preferences (UAPs). Four Jesuits in formation in this province have each written a brief reflection on one of the four UAPs, providing both information and inspiration, while offering some possible prayer prompts for your Lent. The title of their article acts as a link to it.

Each of these authors expands on his reflection in a brief video, which are also available on the province’s YouTube channel. We invite you to share a comment there.
