May 6, 2019 - When I was in the third grade at a Catholic primary school in suburban Maryland, I happened upon a book about St. Isaac Jogues, the 17th century Jesuit missionary, getting flogged, flayed, and having his fingers chewed off on a mission to “New France.” At the time I couldn’t for the life of me understand why someone would choose to go through such an ordeal! Fast forward twenty-some years later, and I am a Jesuit brother living with Jesuits from India, Ecuador, Tanzania, and Wisconsin.
April 29, 2019 — Ask someone who's benefited from a Jesuit education or ministry about the Jesuits’ contributions, and you’ll hear answers like “Jesuits form men and women for others,” “they help people discern God’s presence in their lives,” and "they serve God by caring for and seeking justice for people on the margins.” But we don’t always give thought to how the Jesuits themselves benefit from being in the Society.
April 23, 2019 — Let us pray in thanksgiving for the life of Fr. Theodore J. Hottinger, SJ, who died on April 22, 2019 at St. Camillus, in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. He was 87 years old. May he rest in peace.
