The inscription on the reverse of the medallion reads:
TAKE, LORD, AND RECEIVE ALL MY
LIBERTY, MY MEMORY, MY
UNDERSTANDING AND MY ENTIRE
WILL. ALL THAT I HAVE AND POSSESS,
YOU HAVE GIVEN ME TO YOU, O LORD,
I RETURN IT. ALL IS YOURS, DISPOSE OF IT
WHOLLY ACCORDING TO YOUR WILL. GIVE ME
YOUR LOVE AND YOUR GRACE, FOR THIS IS
SUFFICIENT FOR ME.
Each year, the Deglman Center for Ignatian Spirituality recognizes members of Creighton's faculty and staff who live the spirit of St. Ignatius. Their participation in the mission of Creighton and their involvements beyond university life reflect the Ignatian ideals of Magis, Cura Personalis, and being persons for and with others. In this sense, Magis as "more" is not a quantity, but a quality of soul which desires God's goodness to be seen, expressing God's greatness through our littleness. Cura Personalis is a spirit of personally caring for others, who are themselves loved creations of God, and encouraging them to an awareness of God's love. To know a recipient of the St. Ignatius Award is to have experienced something of St. Ignatius, himself.
The awards are presented annually during the President's Convocation in February. Nominations are accepted between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Nominations should include the following information:
Name of the Nominee
Department and Position of the Nominee
Name, Phone Number, and E-mail Address of the Person Submitting the Nomination
Please describe, in as much depth as you are able, your understanding of how the nominee lives out the ideals of Magis, Cura Personalis, and being a person for others. Please be as detailed as possible in your statement, and feel free to describe the graceful interactions you have witnessed in the nominee's work life, family life, and other involvements.
Send your nomination to the Deglman Center for Ignatian Spirituality, St. John's room 118.
Nominations for the 2015 St. Ignatius Award will be solicited in December of 2014.
