Center for Service

Seeking to embody the Gospel call through Augustinian Tradition and Catholic Social Teaching, the Campus Ministry Center for Service and Social Justice is committed to transforming the minds and hearts of the Villanova community through service, advocacy, and justice education. Calling the Villanova community to commit to the challenge of solidarity and activism, we prophetically work for the common good through reciprocal partnerships and accompaniment with our local and global neighbors.

In the spirit of St. Augustine, who urged his followers to search for God together, consider this reflection on Sunday’s Gospel.The often quoted John 3:16 starts with: “For God so loved the world…” It is a powerful opening phrase that is often overlooked. Take time now to let that soak in for you personally. Does it feel that God loves you so-- Do you feel protected? Cared for ? It is very human to feel abandoned by God when life is not going our way. We can blame God for making bad things happen. But there is a different perspective that is possible that suggests that to find God in all situations, one must follow the love. Fred Rogers shared that “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” God is love. Follow the love.
