This means that Jesuit education must insist upon integral formation of its students through such means as required core curricula that include humanities, philosophy, theological perspectives, social questions and the like, as part of all specialized educational programs. In addition, infusion methods might well be employed within specializations to highlight the deeper human, ethical, and social implications of what is being studied.
[As an aside, I've often commented on the Legion's practice of adding trademarks or personal "signatures" to universal acts of piety, but I never dreamed that they would actually do it. This should be of great significance to those who found a deeper faith through association with the Movement. Please note that the good in the Legion is that of which the Church is already custodian. Hijacking the channels of grace for private ends is reprehensible. Trademarking it on top of that reveals staggaring hubris.]
UPDATE: From a reader --
Lastly, with regard to "integral formation", just want to remind folks that MM wrote a book in the late '90s entitled Integral Formation of Catholic Priests published by Circle Press. Whether he was the actual author or not remains to be seen. However, I would run the other way if any priest offers to form my child who is from an order that has trademarked integral formation as defined by Maciel.
UPDATE II: Rather than running the other way, the yearly gathering for formators based on the Integral Formation of MM is taking place again this summer.
