Jesuit Conference of the United States

The Jesuit Conference of the Society of Jesus in the United States and The Catholic Campaign for Immigration Reform Justice for Immigrants are pleased to announce the winners of the video competition Migration, My Home, My Story. Robert Navarro and Rosalinda Norona of the Church of the Resurrection in Los Angeles submitted the winning video, titled “The Right to be Free.”

“It all came from the heart,” Navarro said of his video after learning the news. Navarro and Norona have won travel and registration for the Ignatian Family Teach-In on immigration in Washington, D.C. March 13-16, 2009. “I am very excited to come to the teach-in so that we can develop more film ideas. Our intent is to document a changing Mexican culture in light of such important issues as immigration. We will continue to examine the role of the Catholic Church in the community as an inspirational centerpiece, especially to young people. This is an exciting period of change.”

Navarro said the inspiration to do the video came after visiting East Los Angeles for the first time in many years. A second generation Mexican-American, Navarro said that he visited East Los Angeles during the annual Christmas parade and was instantly amazed by the sense of community.

For over 450 years Jesuit priests and brothers have lived an amazing story of serving the Church in new and unexpected ways. We are still men on the move, ready to change place, occupation, method--whatever will advance our mission in the Church. We are expected to do anything or go anywhere to teach Jesus Christ and preach his Good News.

Today that "we" has expanded to include men and women who share this vision of service to faith and to the justice that faith demands. Together Jesuits and lay partners place ourselves in the presence of the God who created all people and ask ourselves the questions that St. Ignatius suggested to his first companions during the period of prayer that led to their permanent companionship:

What have I done for Christ?
What am I doing for Christ?
What will I do for Christ?
