What has been the greatest grace of your Jesuit vocation?
I’ve been a Jesuit for 25 years. The single most important grace of my vocation as a Jesuit has been the way that the vocation has encouraged and challenged me to grow in my familiarity with and love of God. Everything about the life has been a part of that: the spirituality and history of the Society; the men who are my brothers and the fraternity they foster and the wisdom they impart in word and action; the process of formation; and the intellectual apostolate to which I have been missioned by my superiors.
