Jesuit Tweets His Spiritual Learnings on 50th Birthday

Jesuit Father Jim MartinShare

Jesuit Father Jim Martin recently turned 50, and to mark the occasion he tweeted 12 things that he wished he had known at 25.

Here are a few of Fr. Martin’s insights or read the full list here.

  1. First up: Stop worrying so much! It’s useless. (i.e., Jesus was right.)
  2. Being a saint means being yourself. Stop trying to be someone else and just be your best self. Saves you heartache.
  3. There’s no right way to pray, any more than there’s a right way to be a friend. What’s “best” is what works best for you.
  4. Remember three things and save yourself lots of unneeded heartache: You’re not God. This ain’t heaven. Don’t act like a jerk.
  5. Your deepest, most heartfelt desires are God’s desires for you. And vice versa. Listen. And follow them.
