Taken from a 1973 address by the Rev. Pedro Arrupe, S.J., former Superior General of the Society of Jesus, the motto was presented as a challenge to Jesuit alumni worldwide and, in fact, has become the motto of all the Jesuit secondary schools throughout the United States. In his speech, Fr. Arrupe urged Jesuit alumni to use their gifts and education for lives of service by participating in the school community, becoming active in their own education, going beyond the minimal expectations in their development, and showing compassion for the least in the community and the world.
