In every society the sins of the past are often very much present. It is, perhaps, a truism that “the past is not past.” Societies with a history of colonization and/or slavery, societies experiencing civil war or violent disruptions, tensions between and among religious, economic or ethnic groups—have produced damages of every sort that can be as visible today as when they occurred. The need for healing and reconciliation is no simple matter involving, as it does, truth, transparency and a willingness to acknowledge the sins of the past. GC 36 declared that “reconciliation” should be the hallmark of our ministries and our institutions. Are there examples of the way a university has contributed to the process of peace and reconciliation? What can Jesuit institutions do to contribute to peace and reconciliation within the communities within which they find themselves?
