What has been the greatest grace of your Jesuit vocation?
The greatest grace of my Jesuit vocation is the excellent formation I have been blessed to receive. This is not only because of all the wonderful people encountered along the way, which has been a tremendous blessing in itself, but mostly because it has afforded me the opportunity to minister in a manner that is fully informed by Ignatian spirituality and the rich heritage of the Society. As I prepared to profess my Final Vows, I found myself deeply moved by this truth. The example and teaching of St. Ignatius and the witness of countless Jesuits through the ages have become the dominant images through which I continually discern the Lord’s call and accompany Him on mission. Whether preaching, counseling, directing retreats or carrying out the many administrative duties of pastoring a large urban parish, I remain deeply grateful for this great gift. I consider myself truly blessed to be counted as a son of Ignatius and a member of the Company he founded.
