Magis is often translated as "more" but it more specifically caries the connotation of "better". Ignatius recognized that often our biggest struggles were not in choosing between good and bad, but in choosing between various goods. (i.e. to marry or enter priesthood, to offer after school help or reduce class size ...) The magis is discerning what is the better choice - what better serves my call (if it's a personal choice) or the mission if choosing a direction for an apostolate.
